Grovertown Man Sentenced on Manufacturing Methamphetamine Charge

A Grovertown man was sentenced Wednesday in a hearing in Marshall Superior Court I.

Adam Wagers, 23, pleaded guilty in a plea agreement with the state to a charge of Manufacturing Methamphetamine, a Class B felony. Judge Robert O. Bowen sentenced Wagers to 14 years in the Indiana Department of Corrections with four years suspended. In exchange for the plea of guilty, four other methamphetamine-related counts filed against him were dismissed.

Wagers was arrested March 7, 2013 after a search warrant was executed at a home on Plum Street in Plymouth where several active and inactive methamphetamine labs were found along with numerous methamphetamine precursors and lab components. Several people were arrested in that incident, including Wagers who crawled out of a back window of the residence and found officers waiting for him.

Wagers admitted in open court that he manufactured methamphetamine at that residence the day he was arrested.
