Drug charges send Salem man to prison for seven years

Corey A. Snay, 22, South Union Avenue, Salem, was sentenced in Columbiana County Common Pleas Court to seven years and four months in a state prison in three drug-related cases.

The newest charges dealt with the illegal manufacturing of methamphetamine, the illegal possession of the chemicals for manufacturing meth and several counts of possession of drugs. On June 23, 2016, Snay had meth, hydrocodone, buprenorphine and alprazolam when an arrest warrant was served on him in a home on West Main Street in Leetonia. While there, agents also found a one-pot methamphetamine lab, which included gas acid generators and other materials.

During a traffic violation on June 10, 2016, in Leetonia, when a K-9 was used, less than .10 gram of meth was found in the door of his vehicle.

Another case stemmed from Snay’s actions on Aug. 26, 2015, when being charged with a theft offense, he was found with a small container of methamphetamines, which he attempted to eat to avoid its discovery. In that case he pleaded guilty to both possession of drugs and tampering with evidence.

Finally, in 2014 Snay was selling meth. He pleaded guilty to two counts of trafficking in drugs for selling about .47 grams of meth at the Evergreen Apartment in Salem on March 21, 2014 and another .82 grams of meth in the same location on May 13, 2014.
