LOUISA COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A man from Doswell has been sentenced to 14 years and eight months in prison for manufacturing illegal drugs in Louisa County.

Robert Murray was sentenced Thursday in Louisa Circuit Court. He was also ordered to serve 20 years supervised probation after he is released.

Murray was arrested in April 2018, along with three other suspects, accused of running a massive drug ring.

When deputies searched the home, they seized more than 400 Oxycodone pills, more than 3,700 Xanax pills, one pound of crystal methamphetamine, 1.8 pounds of marijuana, nearly $8,000 in cash, five shotguns, four rifles and three pistols. The drugs had a total street value of $100,000.

Murray pleaded guilty in May to a charge of manufacturing a controlled substance.

A second suspect, Jeremiah Williams, is also charged with manufacturing a controlled substance. He is due in court June 17.

A third suspect, Joshua Hicks, faces similar charges. He is scheduled to make a plea on July 1.

The fourth suspect, Joanna McDonald, had her charges dismissed in February.
