A Madisonville man pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony distribution of crack cocaine.
Reginald Germaine Scott pleaded guilty to one count of a ten count indictment.
Scott, along with six others, bought powder cocaine in Houston, manufactured it into crack cocaine, and then sold it on the streets of Madisonville, according to the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Attorney's Office.
All six have entered guilty pleas and are awaiting sentencing. Scott faces up to 30 years in federal prison.
The investigation began in 2003 and ended with Scott's arrest and indictment in 2006. Officers from the Brazos Valley Narcotics Task Force, along with an informant, made more than 50 purchases of crack cocaine from Scott and his counterparts, according to federal prosecutors.
Scott remains free on bond while awaiting sentencing November 25.
