LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A federal judge approved a 51-month prison sentence Thursday for a Lufkin man for his involvement in a 13-member meth conspiracy ring.

Gary Justin Kelley, 27, will serve three years under supervision upon his release from prison.

Kelley pleaded guilty in October to purchasing pseudeophedrine for the intent of it being used to make meth. The practice is known in those circles as "smurfing."

Kelly pleaded guilty to Count 23, which alleges he purchased pseudeophedrine on Feb. 27, 2009, at a CVS in Lufkin in order to make meth.

All 13 defendants in the indictment have pleaded guilty to their part in the crime.
