A Montfort has been sentenced to prison for his methamphetamine-related arrest earlier this year.

Cade R. Kirkpatrick, 26, was charged with possession of methamphetamine, a class I felony; manufacture/deliver amphetamine (less than or equal to three grams), a class  F felony; possession of methamphetamine precursors, a class H felony; and knowingly possessing methamphetamine waste, a class H felony.

Kirkpatrick pleaded guilty to the possession of methamphetamine charge and the manufacture/deliver amphetamine (less than or equal to three grams) charge on Sept. 7. The possession of methamphetamine precursors charge and knowingly possessing methamphetamine waste charge were dismissed.

Grant County Circuit Court Judge Robert P. VanDeHey sentenced Kirkpatrick on Nov. 21 to four years in prison and four years of extended supervision in connection with the manufacture/deliver amphetamine (less than or equal to three grams) charge. Kirkpatrick was sentenced to one year in prison and one year of extended supervision for the possession of methamphetamine charge. The sentences will run concurrently.

As conditions of his extended supervision, Kirkpatrick must be employed full-time or seek work at a rate of three job applications per week. VanDeHey also ordered Kirkpatrick to obtain his HSED or GED.

The Richland-Iowa-Grant Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at 204 East Main Street in Montfort on June 15. Located inside the home were two “one pot” methamphetamine labs and materials used in manufacturing methamphetamine, according to a Grant County Sheriff’s Office news release.

The Task Force was assisted at the scene by the Wisconsin Department of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Narcotics Division and C.L.E.A.R. Team, and the Chicago Crime Scene Cleanup Team responded to the scene to neutralize the hazardous materials.
