Meth suspect sentenced to 54 months

NEWTON — A man accused of cooking methamphetamine in a vehicle with a child present was sentenced in Jasper County Court Thursday.

Charles “Chase” L. Shroyer, 23, was sentenced to 54 months in prison after pleading guilty to possession of methamphetamine manufacturing materials and methamphetamine-related child endangerment. Both charges are Class 2 felonies.

Shroyer was arrested on March 26 at the Circle K gas station in Newton after police seized a “one pot” methamphetamine lab from the vehicle. Also arrested at the scene was Genevie Gagliano. A 1-year-old child was taken from the car and placed in the custody of her maternal grandparents.

Gagliano waived a preliminary hearing and is set for trial May 15.

In an unrelated case, Cory M. Williams, 22, of rural Jasper County was sentenced to 30 months in prison after pleading guilty to the charge of possession of methamphetamine, a Class 3 felony. Williams was arrested on June 13, 2013, after providing a substance containing methamphetamine to an undercover government informant while under law enforcement surveillance.
