Comments Off on Aviston Man Pleads Guilty To Charges Involving Mobile Meth Lab That Crashed Into Rear Of Centralia ESDA Director’s Vehicle

A 35-year-old Aviston man has pleaded guilty in Clinton County Court to three felony methamphetamine related charges related to a June traffic crash on the northside of Fairview Park in Centralia that forced closure of some park facilities. Shawn Smith pleaded guilty to amended charges of unlawful possession of methamphetamine, possession of meth manufacturing materials and participating in meth manufacturing.

Smith faces up to 15 years in prison when he will be sentenced by Judge Marc Kelley on October 10th. The plea agreement came on Friday when arguments were scheduled on a motion to suppress evidence in the case.

Centralia Police had discovered an active meth lab in the trunk of Smith’s car after it crashed into the rear of a pickup truck driven by Centralia ESDA Director John Worlds. Neither Worlds nor Smith were hurt in the accident. The mobile meth lab was dismantled without incident.

Centralia Police closed the Fairview Park swimming pool to keep traffic away from the accident site.
