WATAUGA COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -
Five people pleaded guilty to conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and were sentenced to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, according to the Watauga County Sheriff's Office.
In 2008 Agents with Watauga County Sheriff's Office Special Operations Unit began an investigation into a large scale methamphetamine manufacturing organization operating in North Carolina and Tennessee.
The United States Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) became involved in the investigation, and in May 2012, 11 people from the two states were indicted in the Eastern District of Tennessee.
On Tuesday January 8, Tim Miller, 47, Sara Farthing, 30, and James Trivette, 47, all of Sugar Grove, pled guilty. On Thursday January 10, Tommy Ward, 52, of Sugar Grove, and Brandy Church, 29, of Mtn. City, TN, pled guilty and were also sentenced to the Federal Bureau of Prisons for conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine.
Miller received 78 months, Farthing received 58 months, and Trivette received 42 months, and Church received 70 months for their part in the conspiracy.
Ward, who officials said was the leader of the drug trafficking organization, received 151 months.
Deputies said the five were responsible for the manufacture of more than two kilograms of methamphetamine over a 10 year period.
