Comments Off on Man convicted of manufacturing meth sentenced to life in prison

A Magnolia Springs man who was convicted earlier this year of operating a methamphetamine lab in a closet in his mobile home has been sentenced to life in prison.

Fredrick Lee Brown, 53, was arrested in May on a charge of first-degree manufacture of a controlled substance. He was convicted in September and sentenced this week.

Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office deputies Justin Correa and David Hill found the meth lab after they were dispatched to go investigate a report of a lab.

They smelled an odor coming from an open door at Brown’s mobile home, Assistant District Attorney Brett Anderson said in a release.

“Upon entering the home to clear it for safety purposes, deputies discovered Brown as well as five other individuals and the meth lab secreted in a closet,” Anderson said.

Brown later confessed to being one of two meth cooks, the Baldwin County District Attorney’s Office said.

He also admitted that two other people involved in the operation supplied pseudoephedrine, one of the ingredients in meth, the District Attorney’s Office said.

“Mr. Brown said that everyone in the trailer was going to be getting some of the final product, including a pregnant female,” Anderson said.
