TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Police and federal agents arrested a Terre Haute couple for dealing large amounts of meth.

Marc McLawyer faces federal charges of possession with intent to distribute meth.

The criminal complaint filed against McLawyer says a confidential informant made several buys from him.

It also alleges McLawyer received his supply of meth from Coldwater, Mississippi.

If convicted, he faces anywhere from five to 40 years in prison.

Police believe Ashley Harris was McLawyer's girlfriend and helped in his operation.

She's facing state charges of dealing meth, maintaining a common nuisance, neglect of a dependent, and possession of a stolen firearm.
