The leader of a methamphetamine ring taken down in a joint Drug Strike Force investigation last year was sentenced on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, to nine to 20 years in a state prison.
Gary Lynn Moyer, 72, of Dublin, ran the operation out of his home on Cherry Lane, and had six people act as “smurfs” for him, a reference to them gathering items and ingredients required to manufacture methamphetamine. The defendants delivered the items to Moyer, who then used them to produce meth. Some of the defendants also acted as lookouts while Moyer “cooked.”
The operation was dismantled in June 2020 when all seven participants were arrested.
