STANTON — A man was sentenced to up to 20 years in prison Thursday for operating a meth lab.
Alan Miller III, 30, of Big Rapids, was charged with operating a meth lab, purchase of more than 12 grams of pseudoephedrine (typically used to relieve nasal congestion), possession of a police scanner during commission of a felony and driving while license suspended. He pleaded guilty to operating a meth lab.
Miller was stopped by a Lakeview police officer on Dec. 19, 2011, in Lakeview. The officer discovered components used in the production of meth in Miller’s vehicle.
Judge David Hoort noted Miller has been in trouble with the law since he was only 10 years old.
Miller was on probation when he committed the crime. He has additional charges pending in Mecosta County.
Miller did not make a statement when he was sentenced Thursday in 8th Judicial Circuit Court.
