LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A federal judge has approved federal prison sentences for an Alto man and Lufkin man who took part in a meth conspiracy ring.

Judge Ron Clark sentenced Darrell Jean Peel, 30, of Lufkin, to an 84-month sentence and Jason E. Wolf, 35, of Alto, to a 67-month sentence. Each will serve three years of supervised release once they get out of prison.

Both men pleaded guilty in February to the charges. Peel is pleaded guilty to Count 8, which alleges he purchased pseudeophedrine on Nov. 19, 2009, at a CVS in Lufkin, for the purpose of having it used for meth. Wolf is pleading guilty to Count 20, which alleges he purchased pseudeophedrine on April 27, 2011, at Walmart in Lufkin, for the purpose of having it used for meth.

The practice is known in inside circles as "smurfing."

Katherine Nugent and Brady Beam were co-defendants in the case. They pleaded guilty earlier this week and accepted shorter prison sentences.
