Glenn Guyn, 49, of Mount Hermon, faces 30 years to life in prison after his conviction Tuesday by a Washington Parish jury on charges that he was operating a methamphetamine lab.

District Judge Richard A. Swartz Jr. is scheduled to sentence Guyn on Monday, Dec. 7, at 9 a.m.
Assistant District Attorney Nick Noriea prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the Washington Parish Drug Task Force.

The task force was working in the Mount Hermon area on March 14 when officers stopped a vehicle that was being driven erratically by Guyn. During a search of the vehicle, officers discovered plastic sandwich bags that contained powder, which was later determined to be meth. Officers then obtained a search warrant for Guyn’s home, where they discovered items used in the production of meth.

The jury took just 20 minutes Tuesday to find Guyn guilty of possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine and creating and operating a clandestine lab for unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine.

Guyn is a multiple felony offender, who pled guilty to armed robbery in 1989 and also has prior convictions for possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, possession with the intent to distribute hydrocodone and Alprazolam.
