IDAHO FALLS, Idaho -- An eastern Idaho methamphetamine maker whose makeshift drug lab was discovered by firefighters called to douse a blaze at his home earlier this year will spend five years on probation.
Rodney Jenkins, 46, also must serve 45 days in jail for separate counts of delivering and manufacturing the illegal stimulant.
The Idaho Falls Post-Register reports Jenkins pleaded guilty in 7th District Court after his lab was discovered in May by the fire crew.
They'd arrived after a report that a pickup and the rear of Jenkins' home were ablaze, only to discover drug-making chemicals and suspicious glassware.
Jenkins' co-defendant in the case, Tonia Jo Bates, 40, was ordered in July to serve three years' probation after she pleaded guilty to delivery of a controlled substance.
