MADISON, Wis. -

A Madison man was sentenced Monday for delivering heroin and bail jumping, according to a state Department of Justice release.

Ryan Spence was sentenced to three years of prison and five years of extended supervision on the two felony convictions, officials said. Spence previously entered a guilty plea the charges on March 27.

According to a criminal complaint, Spence was Dominic Lombardo and Bryan Brooks on July 27, 2013, when they discussed buying heroin. Lombardo drove Spence and Brooks to the north side of Madison where Spence bought heroin from a dealer he knew.

Spence then went back to the vehicle and shared the heroin with the other two men, according to the complaint. All three men were arrested in the parking lot of a business on Northport Drive the same day.

Police found a small amount of heroin, used syringes containing suspected heroin and various drug paraphernalia associated with using heroin, according to the complaint. Spence and the other two men gave statements to police implicating themselves in the drug activity.

While Spence was released from custody awaiting resolution of the drug case, he was caught attempting to steal a piece of stereo equipment with another person from a Walmart, officials said. The incident is why Spence was charged with felony bail jumping.
