Streetsboro meth cooks get prison, probation following May, September 2013 busts

Two Streetsboro residents who cooked illegal methamphetamine in their Crownwood Court residence in May and September 2013 recently were sentenced to prison time or probation in connection with the incidents.

Portage County Common Pleas Judge John Enlow sentenced Danielle R. Ury, 33, with a last known address in Kent, to three years probation on a charge of endangering children, a third-degree felony, on July 14 in the case from last fall.

Ury pleaded guilty to the charge on April 29. Enlow ordered her to submit to random drug tests and aftercare treatment, find a full-time job and pay $192 in court costs. If she violates her probation, Ury faces up to 30 months in prison, according to his sentencing order.

It was Ury's second conviction on meth-related charges. She has a prior conviction for illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs after pleading guilty to that charge in October 2013, based on a May 2013 case that originated in Streetsboro.

Portage County Drug Task Force agents searched 697 Crownwood Court in Streetsboro on May 15, 2013, discovering and removing chemicals and other materials related to the illegal manufacture of methamphetamine, according to Streetsboro police.

In that case, Judge Laurie Pittman sentenced Ury to 45 days in jail, court-ordered drug treatment, a $5,000 fine and five years probation in December 2013, according to court records.

Ury's co-defendant in both meth cases, Jeremy J. Brown, 37, currently is serving a two-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to illegal manufacturing of drugs, a second-degree felony, in Pittman's courtroom on Jan. 16. He was sentenced the same day, and fined $7,500.

Agents caught Brown and Ury making meth for the second time on Sept. 4, 2013, after entering the residence and noticing a "smoky haze" and "the strong odor of chemicals" inside. A 4-year-old boy was also present, Streetsboro police said.

Agents evacuated the residence, re-entered wearing protective gear and found a meth lab, police said. The 4-year-old, along with other children who were not home at the time of the raid, were placed in the custody of child protective services.

Brown previously was convicted of felonious assault, a second-degree felony, in March 2008 after pleading guilty to assaulting a man in an apartment on Lake Street in Kent in January 2007. He received five years probation on that charge, according to court records.
