HAYS, Kan. (AP) -- Three of four people arrested in a September drug bust in Ellis County that netted 2.5 pounds of crystal methamphetamine have accepted plea deals.

Thirty-nine-year-old Rick Grecian of Hays on Wednesday agreed to enter an Alford plea to three counts of felony distribution of methamphetamine and one count of possession of methamphetamine. The deal calls for Grecian to be sentenced to a total of nearly six years in prison without parole.

The Hays Daily News reports two other people also have reached plea deals. Thirty-nine-year-old Ricky L. McBee has been sentenced to nearly six years in prison and 25-year-old Nathaniel Ward is awaiting sentencing for drug-related charges.

The case against 46-year-old Karen R. Knoll of Ellis is pending.
