Three people accused of buying supplies for a convicted methamphetamine dealer in Taylor County are expected to be charged Tuesday afternoon.
That dealer, Dallas Smart, 28 is serving a nine year prison sentence stemming from a 2012 conviction of numerous charges related to the manufacturing and sale of meth.
Now, investigators are continuing to dig into the case-- learning who supplied Smart with the over the counter medication needed to make meth.
In all, detectives discovered 42 people they believed bought Pseudoephedrine for Smart. Several of those suspects are already serving prison or jail time.
Since 2006, customers who buy pseudoephedrine must sign their name in the pharmacy's log book. Stores are required to keep personal information about purchasers for at least two years.
Justin Reese, 32, of Abbotsford; Heather Prust, 30; and Medford and Penny Krug, 38, also of Medford are all expected to be charged with providing the medication to Smart. An initial court date has been scheduled for May 20. Online court records list the offense dates as 2010 and 2011.
Following his prison sentence, Smart will spend 11 years on extended supervision.
