Schuyler Co. Meth King Sentenced To 15 Years
ROCHESTER, NY (WENY) -- A Schuyler County man will spend the next 15 years in federal prison for one of the largest meth busts in New York state history.
Thirty-three year old John Barton of Dix was sentenced in federal court today Tuesday in Rochester. He was convicted of conspiracy to manufacture, possess and distribute more than 500 grams of meth, along with a slew of other charges.
Investigators uncovered a massive working meth lab at Barton's home in May 2011. Investigators seized more than 30 grams of meth, along with eight guns, more than $8,000.00 in cash, and about a pound of marijuana.
At trial, testimony revealed that Barton, along with Chad Spiecher and Shawn Rickard, manufactured and distributed as much as 900 grams of meth between 2009 and 2011.
