Two Cape men sentenced on meth-related charges
Two Cape Girardeau men were sentenced Monday in federal court to nearly 10 years in prison on felony methamphetamine charges.
Scott E. Smith, 31, was sentenced to 48 months on one count of maintaining a place for the manufacture of methamphetamine. He was also ordered to pay a $1,500 fine. Upon release from prison, he will be on supervised parole for three years.
James A. Furr, 38, was sentenced to 60 months on one count of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. Upon release, he will be on supervised parole for five years.
Both appeared before U.S. District Judge E. Richard Webber.
Smith had permitted Furr and others to engage in some of the steps to make the drug on his property. Additionally, Smith would assist in gathering pseudoephedrine pills and other ingredients.
On Nov. 26, a search warrant executed by police at Smith's residence at 603 Timon Way, Cape Girardeau. Officers found Smith, Furr and other individuals smoking meth in the garage. Police found more than 4 grams of meth in Furr's shirt pocket.
The search of the garage and home turned up a gallon jar of 144.9 grams of meth, a gallon jar containing 24.3 grams of psuedoephedrine, digital scales, several propane and oxygen tanks with homemade valves used to store anhydrous ammonia, various drug paraphernalia, three guns and other related items.
