Man Going To Prison For Making Meth

MGN Online


A 29 year old Williamstown man is going to prison for buying pills from Jefferson County pharmacies to make methamphetamine.

Cy Rayder was sentenced Monday in federal court to three years in prison for his guilty plea to possessing and distributing a listed chemical, pseudoephedrine, knowing it was intended to be used to manufacture methamphetamine. 

Between September and December, 2011, Rayder purchased pseudoephedrine pills from pharmacies in Oswego, Oneida, and Jefferson counties.

He gave those pills to another individual who, in turn, used the pills to manufacture methamphetamine.

In return for the pills, Rayder received finished product meth, which he ingested. 

Eventually, Rayder learned how to manufacture meth himself and used the pills he purchased to make his own. 

Rayder knew there were restrictions on the sale of pseudoephedrine, and that the sales were documented by the pharmacies.

To avoid scrutiny, Rayder occasionally purchased pseudoephedrine from different stores on the same day. 

On 14 separate occasions between September and December of 2011, Rayder purchased pseudoephedrine pills from Oswego, Oneida and Jefferson county pharmacies.

After he finishes his sentence, Rayder will be placed on supervised release for three years.
