An Akron man will be spending nearly a decade behind bars for making methamphetamines.
27-year old Justin Kracker will be spending the next nine years in prison for manufacturing meth in what Summit County Prosecutors announced Tuesday was the largest meth lab in Akron in 2011.
Last December, an officer from the Ohio Adult Parole Authority was given consent to search a home on Tallmadge Avenue. Although the officer did not find the person he was looking for, he did find a meth lab in an upstairs bedroom belonging to Kracker.
Kracker’s two-year-old daughter was home during the time of the search, and the residence is within 1,000 feet of an elementary school.
Kracker was found guilty on May 25 on various drug and child endangering counts.
He was previously convicted of Illegal Manufacture of Drugs in 2005 and Illegal Assembly of Methamphetamines in 2004.
