FORT SMITH (KFSM) — A local man was found guilty in federal court of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine to four states from Mexico.

David Hurl Lemmon, 43, of Alma was found guilty Thursday of felony conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and being a felon in possession of a firearm.  His jury trial took place during a two-and-a-half day span.

The maximum sentence for the conspiracy charge is 10 years to life in prison and a fine of no more than $10 million, or both. The maximum sentence for being a felon in possession of a firearm is up to 10 years in prison and a fine of no more than $250,000.

Lemmon and others were involved in a conspiracy to distribute about 50 pounds of meth. The meth was seized by officers in Potter County, Texas during January 2016.

The charge being a felon in possession of a firearm stems from when seven guns were found in his home during a search March 29, 2016.

Lemmons was investigated for more than one year by more than 10 agencies including the Drug Enforcement Administration, Department of Homeland Security and the Internal Revenue Service- Criminal Investigation Division.
