A ^{119}Sn Mössbauer spectroscopy and zero field ^{55}Mn and ^{139}La NMR studies of (La_{0.67}Ca_{0.33})(Mn_{1-x}Sn_x)O_{3-δ} (x=0, 0.01, 0.03, andδ≈0.06) were reported. The temperature evolution of the Sn hyperfine field (B_{hf}) for x=0.03 determined from the Mössbauer spectroscopy measurements was analysed within a molecular field model. A fit to the temperature dependence of B_{hf}^{max} provided the Curie temperature T^*_C=160(3) K, which is in good agreement with T_C obtained from dc magnetisation measurements. The ^{55}Mn NMR spectra for $x=0$ and 0.01 show a single double exchange Mn^{3+/4+} resonance line and exhibit strong Suhl-Nakamura relaxation effects characteristic of the ferromagnetic metallic phase. The spectra for x=0.03 show a coexistence of the double exchange line with the lines characteristic of Mn^{3+} and Mn^{4+} valence states. This shows that a 3% Sn doping strongly suppresses the double exchange interaction and leads to microscopic phase segregation into ferromagnetic metal and ferromagnetic insulator.
