BEAUMONT, TX (KTRE) – A federal magistrate in Beaumont has sentenced to prison a man known as one of the most prolific Meth cooks in East Texas.

David Dunman Jr. was one of 17 people caught up in a federal drug raid last year.  He first became known when two years ago deputies from the Angelina County Sheriff's office arrested him at his home on FM 842.  At that time they found Meth, a drug lab and several guns.

In 2011, Dunman, 52, was named in a 66 count indictment alleging he was part of what local law enforcement called 'the biggest drug-related conspiracy case in Angelina County.'

Dunman is now headed to federal prison.  Thursday afternoon he was sentenced to 121 months, according to a United States Department of Justice (USDOJ) representative.  Dunman has spent the last six months in the Angelina County Jail awaiting sentencing.
