FRANKLINTON—Glenn Guyn, 49, of Mount Hermon, faces 30 years to life in prison after his conviction Tuesday (Oct. 13) by a Washington Parish jury on charges that he was operating a methamphetamine lab. District Judge Richard A. Swartz, Jr., is scheduled to sentence Guyn on Dec. 7 at 9 a.m.
Assistant District Attorney Nick Noriea prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the Washington Parish Drug Task Force.
The task force was working in the Mount Hermon area on March 14 when officers stopped a vehicle that was being driven erratically by Guyn. During a search of the vehicle, officers discovered baggies that contained powder, which was later determined to be methamphetamine. Officers then obtained a search warrant for Guyn’s home, where they discovered items used in the production of methamphetamine.
The jury took just 20 minutes Tuesday (Oct. 13) to find Guyn guilty of possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine and creating and operating a clandestine lab for unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine. Guyn is a multiple felony offender, who pled guilty to armed robbery in 1989 and also has prior convictions for possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, possession with the intent to distribute hydrocodone and Alprazolam.
