MOUNTAIN CITY, TN (WJHL) -

Two local men and a man from western North Carolina were sentenced Wednesday in federal district court in Greeneville on charges of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine.

According to a district court news release, Judge J. Ronnie Greer sentenced John G. Reece, II, 33, of Bristol, Va., to 132 months in federal prison, with five years of supervised release; Benjamin T. Morefield, 33, of Mountain City, to 119 months in federal prison, with five years of supervised release; and John D. Reece, 35, of Boone, N.C., to 118 months in federal prison, with five years of supervised release.

A total of 20 people, which included the three sentenced above, were indicted in May 2013 for conspiring to make methamphetamine and possessing equipment, chemicals, materials and products to be used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

According to the release, seven others were also charged with distributing methamphetamine.

The charges reportedly stem from an August 2006-May 2013 investigation involving a conspiracy to obtain pseudoephedrine and other products needed to make methamphetamine in eastern Tennessee, western North Carolina, and western Virginia.

According to the release, Reece, Reece and Morefield were reportedly methamphetamine cooks and John G. Reece, II, and Morefield admitted to manufacturing at least 50 but less than 150 grams of methamphetamine.

John D. Reece reportedly said in his plea agreement that he had produced 76.3 grams of actual methamphetamine.
