Third time not a charm for meth maker

Clayton Munn was sentenced to ten years in prison

A northeast Missouri man will be spending the next decade in prison following a guilty plea to a drug charge.

Clayton Munn, 24, of Kirksville, was sentenced to ten years in prison in Adair County Circuit Court after pleading guilty to a charge of attempt to manufacture meth.

Munn was arrested in a meth bust in January when a Kirksville Police officer attempted to stop a vehicle Munn was in. The vehicle met the description of a car wanted in connection with a burglary.

Adair County Prosecutor Matt Wilson told KTVO that Munn was sentenced as a prior and persistent drug offender since this was his third felony conviction relating to controlled substances. Munn had previously been convicted twice on attempt to manufacture meth and manufacturing meth.
