One of two Honeycutt brothers who earlier entered a guilty plea in the Brainerd Army Store meth case was sentenced Monday to serve five months in federal prison and five months in home confinement.
Tony Dewayne Honeycutt also was required to make a $200,000 forfeiture.
He appeared before Federal Judge Sandy Mattice.
Honeycutt earlier pleaded guilty to one count of the indictment dealing with involvement in a conspiracy to sell chemicals knowing they were being used to make meth.
He will not have to report to prison until early January.
He will be on supervised release for two years after getting out of prison and doing his home confinement.
The plea agreement was sealed, and it was not clear whether Tony Honeycutt has agreed to testify against his brother, Terry Michael Honeycutt, who is awaiting trial.
Prosecutor Jay Woods earlier told Judge Mattice that the government has strong evidence in the case, saying that "massive surveillance" was conducted.
The government originally filed criminal informations in the case. Criminal informations are often brought when it is expected that a guilty plea settlement will be reached.
After the filing of the criminal informations, a hearing was set for a change of plea by Tony Honeycutt. However, Terry Honeycutt did not set such a hearing.
The government in the informations was seeking a $300,000 money judgment for the alleged profit on the meth materials from January 2008 to October 2010. The government was also seeking to confiscate the land and store at 5102 Brainerd Road. There were later indictments and the government is no longer seeking to confiscate the land and store.
An indictment listed the forfeiture amount as $269,751.98.
Authorities said earlier that the store was selling large amounts of Polar Ice, which contains a high amount of iodine - a key ingredient in the production of meth.
