A Lee’s Summit man has pleaded guilty to supplying large amounts of methamphetamine to members of a southern Missouri drug ring.
Carlos Tapia, 41, pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court in Springfield to providing as much as 10 pounds of the drug every two weeks to members of the ring, including one of its leaders, 37-year-old Kenna Harmon of Republic, Mo.
Federal prosecutors said that from June 2013 to November 2014, the ring distributed more than 100 pounds of meth in six southern Missouri counties.
Harmon also pleaded guilty Thursday to her role in the conspiracy.
