6 sentenced in local meth ring

Two Marengo County residents were sentenced in Federal Court Friday for their roles in a methamphetamine manufacturing ring.

Thad Moseley, 31, of Demopolis and Stacey Deeree King, 24, of Linden, joined four others in court last week for the parts they played in what court documents claim was the manufacturing of hundreds of batches of methamphetamines in a Greensboro tool shed.

Moseley was sentenced to 10 months in prison while King was sentenced to 30 months in prison. Both will serve a five-year term of supervised release following their prison sentences.

Also sentenced were Carey Lemley Tidmore Jr., 42, of Greensboro, who prosecutors identified as the ringleader. Documents accuse Tidmore of using Pseudoephedrine pills and other items which were supplied to him by the other members of the group.

District Judge Kristi K. Dubose hit Tidmore with the harshest punishment of the group – 14 years in prison followed by five years of supervised release. During the supervision, Tidmore will undergo drug testing and treatment.

Also sentenced were Michael Eugene Snipes, 39, of Greensboro, Gilbert Travis Westbrook, 27, of Valley Grande and Tania Tucker, 34, of Greensboro.

Snipes received five years in prison, Westbrook got 18 months and Tucker one year and one day. All will serve a five-year term of supervised release.
