Man sentenced to federal prison

Posted:

DAVENPORT (KWWL) -- A federal judge in Davenport has sentenced a former Van Buren County man to more than 16 years in prison on drug and explosives charges.

At the sentencing hearing Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge John Jarvey ordered 31-year-old Jerry Lee Schlarbaum to serve 150 months in prison for the possession of a pipe bomb and 50 months on methamphetamine conspiracy and manufacturing charges. Jarvey said the former Stockton resident must serve the sentences consecutively.

After his prison term, Schlarbaum will have to serve eight years on supervised release.

Police stopped Schlarbaum in Henry County in March of 2008 for allegedly driving without a valid license. They say a search of his vehicle turned up materials used in methamphetamine manufacture, as well as methamphetamine itself, plus the pipe bomb.
