LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin man is the first of seven co-defendants to receive his sentencing for his part in a federal meth conspiracy case.

Judge Ron Clark sentenced Don Michael Campbell, 39, to 60 months in prison to two counts of the indictment -- conspiracy to manufacture meth and possession of listed chemicals. Both sentences will be served concurrently. Following his prison stay, Campbell will serve five years of supervised release.

Count One alleges Campbell and Harold David Neyland, 65, of Lufkin, utilized locations in and around Angelina County to cook meth. It also alleges they conspired with six others to purchase pseudeophedrine from various pharmacies from several different counties.

Count 41 alleges Campbell purchased pseudeophedrine from Walgreen's in Lufkin on Dec. 24, 2011.

The practice of purchasing pseudeophedrine with the intent of it being used to make meth is known in inside circles as "smurfing."
