A Marshall County man was sentenced Wednesday to the maximum allowable amount of time for the offenses of Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Precursors with Intent to Manufacture Methamphetamine and Maintaining a Common Nuisance.
Marshall County Superior Court 1 Judge Robert O. Bowen sentenced Travis Chizum to 20 years in the Department of Corrections. A jury found him guilty on those charges, along with a charge of Conspiracy to Manufacture Methamphetamine which was merged with the charge of Manufacturing Methamphetamine. A 20-year sentence was imposed on the manufacturing charge and the maximum sentence of three years was imposed on the remaining counts. The sentences will be served concurrently, or at the same time for a total of 20 years.
Chizum was arrested after it was determined that a methamphetamine manufacturing operation was active out of a garage in Plymouth. An investigation determined that Chizum owned the garage and was involved in the process after witnesses placed him at the scene.
