John R. Faber, 28, of Wellsville was ordered Wednesday to serve a prison term of three years and four months by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara on his conviction for conspiracy to manufacture and distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine. Faber was also ordered to pay $3,143 in restitution to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation in the investigation of the Meth trafficking operation he and four others allegedly operated in Wellsville until early 2012.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas S. Duszkiewicz said a Jan. 26, 2012 raid on a house on South Main Street in Wellsville led to the seizure of a quantity of Meth and a number of items used in the manufacture of Meth. Another raid on a Madison Avenue home in Wellsville lead to the discovery there of an active Meth laboratory, the prosecutor said.
Three others face sentencing in the case. Recently Justin McPherson, 28, of Wellsville was given a two-year federal prison term from Arcara on his Meth conspiracy conviction.
