Carthage Man Admits to Buying Cold Pills to Make Meth
An east Texas man is in deep trouble with local, state, and federal drug authorities. 33-year-old Billy Carroll of Carthage, Texas, has pled guilty before a federal magistrate to possessing Pseudoephedrine with the intention of manufacturing meth. The U-S Attorney’s Office says Carroll has admitted to purchasing cold pills containing more than 47 grams of Pseudoephedrine between April of 2009 and August of 2010 with the intention of using it to manufacture meth. He was indicted by a federal grand jury in April of last year. He faces up to 20 years in prison when he’s sentenced, but a sentencing date has yet to be set.
