A Westmoreland County man pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court in Pittsburgh to violating narcotics laws by conspiring to distribute methamphetamine.

Kevin W. Nicol, 57, of 100 Johntown Court, Harrison City, faces sentencing on July 12 before U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti, according to a news release. He faces a sentence of 5 years up to 40 years, according to the release.

Nicol is accused of working with another man to bring methamphetamine from Sacramento, Calif., to Westmoreland County to sell it. Police said the men were selling “ice,” a pure form of methamphetamine.

Dominick Spickle, 79, of Sacramento, pleaded guilty in February to violating drug laws in U.S. District Court and is scheduled for sentencing on June 14.

State police said he transported the methamphetamine from California to Westmoreland County.

Police conducted three controlled purchases from Spickle in September. They were led to Nicol's house in Penn Township by Spickle.

Both men are free on bond.
