Two plead guilty in meth case; five in all were arrested

CLINTON — Some of those charged in connection with a Camanche drug bust in May have pleaded guilty to some of the charges facing them.

Clinton County District Court Judge Mary Howes accepted plea agreements Thursday from Camanche residents Charles W. McKenrick, 59 and David P. Shamp Jr., 42. Both were charged with conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine in excess of 10 grams, possession of meth precursors and child endangerment.

Camanche police executed a search warrant on May 17 at 620 Third Ave., Camanche, resulting in the arrest of five individuals. Shamp pleaded guilty to possession of meth precursors and McKenrick pleaded guilty to possession of meth precursors and child endangerment.

Shamp told the court that he bought pseudoephedrine tablets between December 2012 and May 2013 for the purpose of manufacturing meth. Assistant County Attorney Amanda Meyers indicated the state believes this operation was going on between August 2011 and May 2013.

Possession of meth precursors and child endangerment are both class D felonies, which carry up to five years in prison and fines of between $750 and $7,500. Meyers will recommend suspended sentences for both defendants.

A plea hearing is scheduled on July 11 for Kimberly A. Lane, 32, of Camanche. A pre-trial hearing for Seth A. Green, 40, of Dixon, Ill., will be rescheduled.

The final pre-trial hearing for Nathan T. Green, 33, of Camanche, is set for Aug. 1. His trial date is Aug. 12.
