jail-bars-and-cuffs1A Manchester man was recently sentenced for manufacturing methamphetamine. The Clayton County Attorney’s Office says 28-year old Larry Hicks Jr. received a 15-year prison sentence with a 5-year minimum. The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office had received information on December 28th, 2013 that meth was being manufactured at a home in Edgewood. Authorities discovered a meth lab in the home and multiple witnesses identified Larry Hicks Jr. as the person cooking the meth. He was charged as a habitual offender due to prior convictions for theft and controlled substance violations in Delaware County in 2006 and 2007. The habitual offender enhancement increased Hicks’ sentence from 10 years with a one-third minimum to 15 years with a 5-year minimum. Hicks has since been transported to Delaware County to address pending charges there.
