ROANOKE — Six Twin County residents and a Wytheville man snared in a methamphetamine investigation have all pleaded guilty and will spend a combined 89 years in federal prisons, according to court records.
A traffic stop on Arturo Velejan Hernandez of Independence by Grayson Deputy Alan Graham near Fries last year led to a search of the vehicle and the discovery of two ounces of meth.
A combined operation by the Twin County and Claytor Lake drug task forces and Drug Enforcement Administration agents led to four federal indictments being issued in the case.
