Scio woman sentenced to 2 years in connection with meth conspiracy

A Scio woman will spend the next two years in prison following her conviction on charges of conspiracy to manufacture and sell methamphetamine, officials said.

Elizabeth J. Schreiber, 37,  who was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo, was one of 12 people arrested as part of the conspiracy, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

She was the tenth to be convicted in the case, officials said.

Between January 2011 and late 2014, Schreiber conspired with others to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine, according to U.S. Attorney Brendan T. Cullinane.

To avoid restrictions on purchasing large quantities of pseudoephedrine-- an ingredient in meth manufacturing-- investigators said the Allegany County woman made small purchases of the drug at pharmacies, according to officials.

Schreiber was convicted of conspiracy to manufacture, possess with intent to distribute, and distribute, a mixture and substance containing methamphetamine, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
