A northwest Iowa man has pleaded guilty to federal drug charges and faces at least two decades in prison. Twenty-nine-year-old Scott Alan Hare of Cleghorn admitted in court that he made meth at a home in Marcus, Iowa, that was within one-thousand feet of a school. In late 2008, authorities found a meth lab in Hare’s home outside of Cleghorn.
Authorities soon searched another home in the area — it was the home near the school in Marcus — and found meth-making material there. A month and a half later, officers searched a home in Cherokee where Hare was living and they found items used to make meth there, too.
Hare faces a minimum sentence of 20 years in a federal prison, but the judge would sentence him to life behind bars.
