Tampering with evidence of Randolph meth lab gets man probation

By Dave O'Brien | staff Writer Published:

Taking "full responsibility for everything" he did, a Randolph man was sentenced Monday to two years' probation for tampering with evidence of an illegal methamphetamine lab on Waterloo Road in December 2011.

Colton R. Davis, 19, was sentenced by Portage County Common Pleas Judge John Enlow to two years probation, ordered to submit to random drug tests and get a GED. If he fails to abide by the rules of probation, he could serve a year in prison, Enlow said.

Davis pleaded guilty in November to tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony, for his role in trying to cover up a meth lab at his home at 5054 Waterloo Road on Dec. 26, 2011.

His father, Robert B. Davis, 43, is serving a three-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to manufacturing methamphetamine there.

The Portage County Prosecutor's Office did not object to Davis being placed on probation, Assistant Prosecutor Eric Finnegan said. Defense attorney Brian Pierce said Davis had no prior criminal record and now works in construction.

Davis told Enlow he will "do everything I have to, to do probation 100 percent."
