Berea man receives 12-year sentence for making meth

RICHMOND — A Berea man was sentenced Thursday to 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to manufacturing methamphetamine.

Andrew Purvis, 33, was arrested April 27 after Berea police were notified that two people were buying methamphetamine precursors at Walmart, according to a BPD news release.

Officers watched the couple get into their vehicle and followed it to McDonald’s. Officers then stopped the vehicle and identified the occupants as Purvis and Heather Robinson, 28, also of Berea.

Officers searched the vehicle after obtaining consent and found five items used to make meth. A search warrant was obtained to search the couple’s apartment in the 300 block of Harrison King Lane where two meth labs were discovered.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Department assisted with the investigation and cleanup of the apartment.

Other people sentenced Thursday by Madison Circuit Judge William Clouse were:

• Adam L. Anglin, 25, second-degree robbery, sentenced to three years. Anglin pleaded guilty to hitting a man in the head Aug. 4, knocking him unconscious, and stealing his wallet, $200 and a cell phone.

• Phillip T. Wells, 27, third-degree burglary, second-degree burglary and convicted felon in possession of a firearm, total sentence of 15 years to run concurrently with sentences he already is serving on cases from Perry, Powell, Pulaski and Hardin counties.

One of Wells’ burglary charges stems from a Dec. 4, 2010, break-in at Dunham’s Sports in which a safe containing cash was stolen.

• Samuel E. Jackson, 27, on 37 counts of second-degree burglary, total sentence of 15 years to run concurrently with sentences he already is serving on cases from Clark, Powell and Rockcastle counties.

• Keith Anthony Cates, 40, two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, sentenced to five years on each count to run concurrently for a total of five years. Cates was granted supervised probation for five years.

• Jack S. VanWinkle, 25, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, sentenced to one year. VanWinkle was granted supervised pretrial diversion for two years.

• Thuy Helton, false statement/misrepresentation to receive benefits (over $100), sentenced to two years. Helton will serve 30 days in jail within six months of sentencing, and the remainder of her sentence will be probated under supervision for three years. She must pay restitution.

• Glenn S. Sanders, 40, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense (one year), possession of marijuana (30 days) and possession of drug paraphernalia (30 days). The total sentence of one year in prison was probated (unsupervised) for two years.
