WATAUGA COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

A Watauga County woman was convicted Tuesday of conspiracy to manufacture more than 50 grams of methamphetamine, according to the Watauga County Sheriff's Office.

Sandra Parlier, 54, of Elk Park, was arrested in May along with ten other people in North Carolina and Tennessee after an investigation into a large-scale methamphetamine manufacturing organization that began in 2008, deputies told WBTV.

Various people identified Parlier as one of the early participants in the conspiracy, responsible for purchasing large quantities of pseudoephedrine and other precursors necessary to manufacture methamphetamine, the report states.

Pharmacy records confirmed that from 2007 to 2012 Parlier had purchased in excess of 132 grams of pseudoephedrine which was used to manufacture methamphetamine. The conspiracy was responsible for the manufacture of more than two kilograms of the drug over a 10-year period, officials said.

Parlier's sentencing is set for March 5, 2013, in U.S. District Court in Greenville, Tennessee. She faces a sentence of at least 10 years to life for the conspiracy conviction.
