MILTON — A 46-year-old man was convicted Friday of trafficking methamphetamine, unlawful possession of listed chemical, marijuana possession, narcotic equipment possession and resisting an officer without violence.
Dennis Wayne Elliot was arrested in June 2009 after deputies executed a search warrant on his home and Elliot's resistance caused a jar of methamphetamine oil to spill and created a chemical reaction, according to a news release from the State Attorney's office.
Deputies were forced to vacate the home at the time until they had protective equipment and then located an additional 257 grams of methamphetamine in Elliot's room along with drug paraphernalia and less than 20 grams of marijuana.
According to the release, Elliot had gone to a number of pharmacies collecting materials used to make methamphetamine.
Elliot faces a maximum sentence of 48 years in prison, including a mandatory sentence of 15 years. His sentencing is scheduled for June 30.
