Florida Man Sentenced In Exit 23 Meth Lab Bust

A man who set up a methamphetamine lab in an Exit 23 motel room was sentenced Thursday in Greene County Criminal Court to 11 years in prison, at 30 percent release eligibility, court officials said.

Ronald Lee West Jr., 28, of North Fort Myers, Fla., was convicted Monday by a Greene County jury of initiation of a process intended to result in the manufacture of methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

West was sentenced by 3rd Judicial District Criminal Court Judge John F. Dugger Jr.

West and a co-defendant, 27-year-old Ashley D. Eggers, of Morristown, were arrested March 8 after agents of the 3rd Judicial District Drug Task Force (DTF) went to a room at the Super 8 Motel, off Interstate 81 at Exit 23.

DTF agents acted on a tip, an arrest report said.

Eggers rented the room, and she and West had been staying there two to four days, the report said.

Agents received verbal consent from Eggers to search the room and found a small box containing several syringes. Also found in a backpack were "several items used in the production of methamphetamine," the report said.

The backpack held at least two plastic bottles "containing mixed precursors used to manufacture methamphetamine," the report said.

Eggers entered a guilty plea Monday before Dugger to a lesser count of attempted initiation of a process intended to result in the manufacture of methamphetamine, court officials said.

She was sentenced to three years in prison at a 30 percent release eligibility, court officials said.

Assistant District Attorney General Ritchie Collins was prosecutor in the cases of West and Eggers.
