Two prison sentences for meth manufacture

February 17, 2012:

Today, two Muscatine men were sentenced to serve prison terms for their involvement in methamphetamine manufacture. Brent REDDICK, DOB: 7/21/1968, formerly of 513 E. 6th St., Apt. 1, Muscatine and Tad JOB, DOB: 6/14/1968, of the same address had previously pleaded guilty to Manufacture of a Controlled Substance, a class "C" felony.

In each case the Court imposed a prison term not to exceed ten years. Both defendants were ordered to be transported to the Iowa Medical and Classification Center to commence their sentences.

The prosecution of REDDICK and JOB was the result of an investigation by the Muscatine Police Department. Patrol officers conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle occupied by both defendants on October 10, 2011. Investigation during the stop revealed a methamphetamine lab in the vehicle. Assisting in the case was the Muscatine County Sheriffs Office.
