WENATCHEE — A Republic man who was found sleeping in his car with bags of black tar heroin and jars of illicit prescription drugs was sentenced to 21 months in prison under an addiction treatment plan.

A Chelan County sheriff’s deputy discovered Charles Anthony Landert, 23, asleep in his 1990 Honda Accord Dec. 11, parked in a Leavenworth ditch at the junction of Icicle Road and Highway 2. Once roused, Landert told the deputy he’d pulled over en route to Marysville to smoke heroin, and lost consciousness.
