FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - A man who was making methamphetamine in a motel parking lot just got a 99-year prison sentence.

In November 2010 police caught Shawn Venabelle making meth in van which was parked at a Saginaw motel.  He had more than 600 grams of meth in the van at the time.

On Thursday a Tarrant County jury sentenced Venabelle to 99 years in prison.

Venabelle, who is 47, has three prior felony convictions for crimes he committed in the 1990s.
