Douglas County jury convicts man of manufacturing methamphetamine at hotel

September 6, 2011


A Douglas County jury Monday afternoon convicted a 58-year-old man of manufacturing methamphetamine in September 2009 in Douglas County.

Jurors found Douglas L. Snowden guilty of unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance after they began deliberating Tuesday morning.

Douglas County assistant district attorneys James McCabria and Mark Simpson in the four-day trial accused Snowden of manufacturing meth at the Airport Motel just northeast of Lawrence on U.S. Highway 24-40.

District Judge Peggy Kittel is scheduled to sentence Snowden Oct. 21, and she revoked his bond and ordered him held in the Douglas County Jail Tuesday after the verdict.

He was just trying to save some money since they charge by the hour.

My friend and I used to make bets on if the hotel would have it's 'No Vacancy' sign lit up as we drove back into Lawrence from work at The Legends. Mysteriously enough it always seemed to be full on Monday nights. We always joked that the only people who stay there must be meth cooks. We also are rather curious as to what the inside of one of those rooms looks like.
