A northeast Iowa man will spend 17 years in prison after admitting to making methamphetamine. Forty-year-old Ronnie Snyder of Calmar pleaded guilty to a charge of knowingly and intentionally manufacturing and attempting to manufacture meth. Authorities stopped Snyder in October of 2003 on an arrest warrant from Minnesota.
During a search of Snyder’s vehicle officers found two-way radios, a digital scale, bottles containing liquids, and a recipe for meth. They also found meth-related items at Snyder’s Calmar home, along with a quantity of meth and over 800 tablets of pseudoephedrine used in making meth. Snyder was sentenced in federal court in Cedar Rapids to 208 months in prison followed by five years of supervised released.
