ROCKINGHAM COUNTY -- A man, who made and sold methamphetamine from his home, will spend 3.5 years in prison.
Scott Lam pleaded guilty on Friday to manufacturing a controlled substance, possession and conspiracy charges.
Leaders of the RUSH Drug Task Force say they found drug paraphernalia in Lam's Elkton home, including a host of chemicals and ingredients used to make meth last year when Lam was arrested.
Investigators say Lam was considered the leader of a drug ring in Rockingham County. Lam was arrested with 13 others for involvement in that meth lab. Investigators say the group called themselves "the Smurfs" when making the drugs.
