A Chattanooga man has been sentenced to serve 10 years in federal prison for selling meth.

Timothy Litchford, 48, appeared before Judge Travis McDonough.

Authorities said Litchford was part of a meth conspiracy that operated starting in February 2015 for about a year.

On Jan. 8, 2016, police were notified that several people were loading items from a house on Redlands Drive. 

Litchford was among those at the scene, and he had 60 grams of meth on him. Police also found 58 grams of meth in a stolen white GMC truck he was driving, 6.6 grams of marijuana, drug ledgers, a Samsung cell phone and $8,118 cash.

Litchford admitted that he had been selling meth.

On Feb. 22, 2016, police saw Litchford take two backpacks across the street from a suspected drug house. Police found a pound of meth in the backpacks.

Litchford, who was represented by attorney Stevie Phillips, initially faced a minimum of 20 years in prison.
