PICKENS, SC - Two Pickens County residents were convicted of drug trafficking Friday, while a third person was convicted of conspiracy.

Thirteenth Circuit Solicitor Walt Wilkins stated that a jury convicted Michael Levant Mealor, 43, and Cynthia Mansell Greenfield, 51, both of Six Mile, with trafficking in methamphetamine over twenty-eight grams and were sentenced to nine years in prison. A third person, Carol Denise Hayes, 49, of Six Miles, was convicted of conspiracy and sentenced to three years in prison.

According to Wilkins, evidence presented during the trial showed that Mealor and Greenfield conspired with 18 other people to manufacture large quantities of meth. Over the course of the trial, Wilkins and assistant solicitor Sam Tooker utilized pseudoephedrine purchase records against Mealor and Greenfield and their conspirators, including Hayes. Furthermore testimony from experts showed the potential yield of meth was from the pseudoephrine.

"The court's ruling and jury verdict should better help law enforcement and prosecutors in the Thirteenth Circuit investigate and prosecute methamphetamine manufacturing in the future," said Wilkins.
