GavelA Delaware County man is sentenced to more than 12 years in prison for going out of the country to get the ingredients to make meth.

Forty-two-year-old Roger Hettinger of Manchester pleaded guilty in May to importation of pseudoepherine, possession of illegal silencers and possession of pseudoepherine with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine.

Hettinger admitted to going to Canada with others to buy pseudoepherine to use in making meth at his home. A search of his home in January turned up a meth-making operation along with 19 guns and four homemade silencers for the guns. He was sentenced to 150 months in federal prison where there is no parole.
