A Clintwood man faces prison time for manufacturing methamphetamine at a residence in Pound.
Alex Plaine Senter, 26, was found guilty Monday in Wise County circuit court on charges of manufacturing meth, according to a release from Slemp.
Senter was sentenced to 15 years, with 10 years suspended upon condition of successful completing four years of probation.
According to Slemp, Pound police arrived at a Pound residence on Nov. 7, 2015 and saw what appeared to be chemical smoke from meth manufacturing. They got a warrant and searched the premises along with the Southwest Virginia Drug Task Force and county sheriff’s deputies. Officers found multiple items used in the process, as well as a “shake n’ bake” meth lab in progress. Senter was one of the individuals involved.
Slemp and Chief Deputy Commonwealth Attorney Steven Davis prosecuted the case.
