Man took meth to jail

  • 0

A 56-year-old Creston man faces several felony charges for repeatedly possessing methamphetamine in Carroll, most recently for having several bags of the drug when he was jailed in March.

Michael O’Hara Sherrod was found with a pill that contained meth during a traffic stop in December, according to court records. He was arrested for the crime in February after the state crime lab confirmed the pill contained the drug.

During that arrest, an officer found a further 9 grams of suspected meth. After the crime lab confirmed it was meth, Sherrod was arrested again in March.

During that arrest, Sherrod had about 18 grams of meth that was discovered as he was booked into the Carroll County jail.

“The methamphetamine was in individually wrapped bags and appeared ready to be distributed,” according to a criminal complaint.

Sherrod also is accused of possessing seven pills of an unspecified prescription drug.

He has faced four felony drug charges — two of which are punishable by up to 25 years in prison apiece — and several misdemeanors. He pleaded guilty in one of the cases to a lesser felony that is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Sherrod’s most-recent felony charge was filed in court this week. It’s unclear in court records whether it will be dismissed as part of the plea deal.
