Lamar Co. man sentenced in federal court on drug charges

LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Lamar County man has been sentenced to nearly 8 years in federal prison on drug charges. Tommy Lucas, 48, was sentenced to 95 months by U.S. District Court Judge Keith Starrett Thursday morning.

Luacs was sentenced today, for previously pleading guilty for possession with intent to distribute, two days after Warren Lewis, 70, was sentenced to nearly 17 years in prison with the same case.

Lucas was part of what is believed to be the largest methamphetamine seizure in Lamar County history.

Lucas and six-others were arrested in November 2013 for running what is said to be one of the largest crystal meth operations in the area. During the time multiple search warrants were being executed an additional five-pound bag of meth valued at quarter of a million dollars was found on a 400 acre property off Little Black Creek Road.
