WELLSVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) – A man who was making meth on the southern tier will spend more than three years in prison.

In January 2012, John Faber of Wellsville was arrested during a raid that also saw Jason Patterson, his wife April Patterson, Anthony Kidd, and Justin McPherson taken into custody. All of those arrested have been convicted.
