A York man, who was arrested for shoplifting raw materials used to make methamphetamine from a Walgreen’s store and then re-arrested months later with meth materials in his backpack while out on bond, will serve 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to second offense manufacturing of the drug, prosecutors said.
Robin Scott Collier II, 27, pleaded guilty Monday after admitting he and others stole the meth materials from the Rock Hill store in July with plans to “cook” the meth in Clover, said Jennifer Colton, 16th Circuit assistant solicitor.
While out on bond from that arrest, agents seeking Collier for failing to conform to probation requirements found him with a backpack filled with meth-making materials tied to the same Clover lab.
Collier has previous convictions for cocaine and marijuana possession, as well as forgery, resisting arrest, burglary, larceny, robbery, receiving stolen goods and breaking into cars.
