Man pleads guilty in meth manufacturing cases




A Montrose man pleaded guilty Friday in two cases from last fall involving the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

Anthony Olszewski, 37, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to manufacture a controlled substance; and one count of manufacturing a controlled substance.

In the conspiracy case, Olszewski admitted that he, and three others – Salvatore Gentile, Angel Powers and Jeremy Truckenbrod, all took part in gathering the ingredients needed to make methamphetamine and/or the process of making the drug at an apartment on Public Ave., Montrose on Oct. 12, 2012.
Olszewski also admitted to making methamphetamine Nov. 21 at a residence in Bridgewater Twp.

In both cases, law enforcement personnel discovered the tools and ingredients associated with the process of meth making.

Both counts are punishable by a time of incarceration of up to 10 years.

But District Attorney Jason Legg said he had agreed to waive the mandatory two-year minimum on the conspiracy charge in exchange for the plea and had agreed to Olszewski serving a county sentence; with a consecutive probationary sentence on the drug manufacturing count.

Olszewski is scheduled to be sentenced by President Judge Kenneth Seamans on May 23.
