TYLER -- Two Gregg County men, appearing in Tyler Federal Court, have pleaded guilty to separate drug violations.
Thomas Dale Amburn, 29, of Longview, pleaded guilty to being involved in a conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and distribution of methamphetamine.
Prosecutors say, since approximately July 2004, Amburn had been conspiring to distribute methamphetamine with others in and around the Longview, Texas area. A federal superseding indictment was returned last October, charging 15 individuals with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
At sentencing, Amburn faces a sentence of up to 40 years imprisonment and a fine up to $2 million. A sentencing date has not been set at this time.
And Jesse Joseph Montoya, 27, of Longview, pleaded guilty to being involved in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
According to prosecutors, a co-defendant was purchasing multiple ounces of methamphetamine from Montoya and other co-defendants in the Longview area. A one-count federal indictment was returned by the Grand Jury in Tyler last June.
At sentencing, Montoya faces up to 40 years imprisonment and a fine up to $2 million. He has also agreed to forfeit some United States currency. A sentencing date has not been set for Montoya at this time.
