A Caldwell County man has been sentenced to prison after being convicted this week in a methamphetamine case.

Timothy Shawn Harrell, 38, was sentenced in Caldwell County Superior Court to between 44 and 62 months in prison after a conviction of manufacturing meth, according to prosecutors.

Harrell was among five people arrested in early March 2011, following a Crime Stopper’s tip, authorities said. At the time, Caldwell County sheriff’s deputies said the methamphetamine production was taking place at Harrell’s home on Alfred Hartley Road.

Investigators reported finding a propane torch, propane fuel containers, acetone, drain cleaner, pseudoephedrine, lithium batteries and other materials used in making meth.
