COLUMBIA CITY â€” A Churubusco man, who was arrested for manufacturing methamphetamine with his brother, received the same sentence as his sibling in Whitley County Circuit Court Monday.
Ben Greer, 30, was arrested in November on six meth-related charges. He pleaded guilty to dealing in methamphetamine and, as part of a plea agreement, the other counts were dismissed.
Greer was sentenced to 10 years at the Indiana Department of Corrections, with eight to serve and two suspended. His brother Andrew received the same sentence, except his will be served at the Whitley County Jail.
Whitley County Circuit Court Judge James Heuer said a sentence for Ben the same as his brother would be appropriate. He also commended Ben for taking responsibility for his actions, but said his prior criminal history was a factor.
