LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Two more of the 13 defendants in a federal meth conspiracy case have received their prison sentences.

Both women pleaded guilty in November to purchasing pseudeophedrine from pharmacies with the intent for it to be used to cook meth, an act known in inside circles as "smurfing."

Federal Judge Ron Clark approved a 70-month prison sentence for Lyndsey Denise Miller, 22, of Lufkin, on May 22. She will also have to serve three years of supervised release. Clark also approved a 57-month prison sentence for Tiffany Lorelle Stovall, 23, of Lufkin. She will have to serve two years of supervised release.

According to court documents, Miller pleaded guilty to Count 52, a charge of possession of listed chemicals, which alleges she purchased pseudeophedrine on Oct. 29, 2009, at the Walmart in Lufkin. Stovall pleaded guilty to Count 119 of the indictment, which alleges she purchased pseudeophedrine on Oct. 22, 2010, at a Lufkin CVS Pharmacy.
