Man Gets Prison Sentence in Dubuque Meth Blast

  • Photo
DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - A 26-year-old Waterloo man blamed for a meth-related explosion at Loras College in Dubuque has been given 10 years in prison.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald says Brent Brown had made a plea deal with prosecutors on charges of arson and manufacturing methamphetamine. He was sentenced on Monday.

Court records say Brown tried to make meth in a bathroom of the Lynch-McCarthy apartment complex while visiting his girlfriend in February 2012.

Judge Thomas Bitter says Brown owes $10,000 in restitution to Loras College.
