Salem Man Found With Meth Lab Admitted To Drug CourtA 51-year-old Salem man who was found inside a room at a former motel at 1120 South Broadway with a 'shake and bake' meth lab has pleaded guilty to charges pending against him to get admitted to the Marion County Drug Court Program.
Gregory Houston entered the plea to a Class 'X' charge of participation in meth manufacturing for producing between 400 and 900 grams of meth and for possession of meth manufacturing material. Police found Houston and the meth lab in March after the owner of the building noticed some items had been moved around.
If Houston successfully completes drug court, the charges against him will be dropped. If he failed drug court, he will immediately move to the sentencing phase on the two charges.
