An Apple Creek man who admitted to making meth at a Wooster home in 2014 was sentenced to two years in prison.
William Bryan Davis, 50, last known address of 1140 Apple Creek Road, was sentenced Tuesday in Wayne County Common Pleas Court after he entered guilty pleas to counts of aggravated possession of drugs (fifth-degree felony) and attempted illegal manufacture of drugs (third-degree felony).
A third meth-related charge was dropped after he accepted the plea deal.
Senior Agent Jason Waddell, with the Medway Drug Enforcement Agency, said Davis was implicated in a meth lab discovery at a residence located at 735 E. Henry Street in Wooster in July 2014 while he was on probation.
Officers from the Wayne County Municipal Probation Department received a tip that meth was being cooked at the home. They were accompanied by Wooster Police and Medway agents for a knock and talk, before searching the home.
In a room under the garage and accessible only from the outside, Waddell said a one-pot meth lab was located, along with suspected finished meth and marijuana.
Davis was not at the home, but witnesses provided information that he allegedly was cooking at the home for several months prior to the call.
Waddell noted, though, that a Powerade bottle Davis had apparently drunk out of was found at the scene and contained his DNA. A warrant was issued for Davis and he turned himself in on that warrant several months later.
He was indicted in April 2015 on the meth charges.
