A guilty plea is announced Wednesday in connection to a Meth manufacturing conspiracy in Allegany County, New York.

Authorities say 60-year-old Lionel Carter of Wellsville is one of 12 people charged from the investigation and the fourth to be convicted.

He pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiracy to manufacture, possess, and distribute the drug.

Authorities say he bought small quantities of Pseudoephedrine, a chemical needed to make Meth, at local pharmacies to get around purchasing restrictions.

The charge carries a five to 20 year prison sentence and a five million dollar fine.
