Pleasant Twp Man Sentenced For Meth Making

A Pleas­ant Town­ship man was given a four year sen­tence on Mon­day in Steuben Supe­rior Court after he was arrested last May for mak­ing metham­phet­a­mine. 25-year-old Jere­miah Mathes entered a guilty plea to the Level 5 felony in late August. In exchange for his guilty plea, pros­e­cu­tors dis­missed a pos­ses­sion of chem­i­cal reagents charge. Mathes was given credit for 67 days already served and he was rec­om­mended for ther­a­peu­tic com­mu­nity cor­rec­tions. He was arrested by the Steuben County Sheriff’s Depart­ment when they were called to assist the Steuben County Pro­ba­tion Depart­ment with a home visit in the 4200 block of west County Road 103 South. Dur­ing the visit, deputies say they saw some items com­monly asso­ci­ated with the mak­ing of meth were found inside of the res­i­dence and out­side in the trash.
