Lufkin, TX — A federal grand jury indicted 13 Angelina County people for an alleged conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine since 2008.
The indictment states the various coconspirators purchased pseudoephedrine from Sam’s Pharmacy, Walmart Pharmacy, Walgreen’s Pharmacy and CVS Pharmacy for the purpose of manufacturing a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of meth.
They would then rent motel rooms to manufacture the illegal substance and then transport it to Angelina County from Nacogdoches, Liberty, Smith, Dallas, Collin, Anderson, Jasper, Galveton, Kaufman, Walker, Polk, Cherokee, Tarrant, Denton, Orange, Jefferson, Hardin, Shelby, Newton, Tyler, Harris and Montgomery counties, according to the indictment.
Of the 149 indictments, Terry Lee Loving and Louis Ray Loving Jr. maintained residences at 910 Markus Ave. and 414 Vine St. for the purpose of manufacturing, distributing or using meth. Both men also possessed iodine, also used in the making of meth.
For the first charge of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, the 13 defendants could face five to 40 years in prison, a fine up to $5 million, or both.
