(Beaver Dam) A Beaver Dam man who bought meth after his own batch went bad was sentenced to two years in prison and was placed on extended supervision for three years Thursday. Lloyd Law entered a no contest plea to a felony count of Possession of Materials for Manufacturing Methamphetamine. Additional felony charges of Maintain a Drug Trafficking Place and Possession of Meth were dismissed but read into the record.
Beaver Dam police and the Dodge County Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at a property on Wall Street last October. Authorities found a meth cooking lab inside a shed in the backyard. Law, who was a tenant and on probation for possessing meth, at first denied knowing anything about the lab.
The 34-year-old then admitted the cooking materials were his. He said his own batch of meth was not good, so he threw it away and went to Appleton to buy it instead.
At sentencing, District Attorney Kurt Klomberg said the manufacturing of meth is extremely dangerous as lethal gases can be released as well as the high danger of explosions or fire. He adds that this is all in addition to the danger and destruction that the drug itself brings to the community.
