Two people were sentenced in Marshall County Superior Court 1 on Wednesday on methamphetamine related charges.

Jeremy Hill, 32, of Argos will spend ten years in the Indiana Department of Corrections after pleading guilty in a plea agreement with the state to a charge of manufacturing methamphetamine. As per the plea agreement, Hill was ordered to undergo intensive drug rehabilitation through the purposeful incarceration program.

Hill was on probation when he submitted a urine sample that tested positive for methamphetamine. When officers arrived at his home on Williams Street in Argos on Feb. 12, they found items used in the manufacture of methamphetamine and other paraphernalia.

A ten year sentence was imposed on Andrew Franz, 28, of Rochester after he pleaded guilty in a plea agreement with the state to a charge of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine.

Franz admitted in open court that he and a 19-year-old woman stole several items from Wal-Mart in Plymouth on Oct. 18, 2013 that were intended to be used to manufacture methamphetamine. After further investigation, police found that the pair had numerous purchases of pseudoephedrine purchases. Franz had also perviously served a prison sentence and he was on parole at the time of this incident.

Franz may petition the court for a modification of his sentence after serving six years of the ten year sentence.
