A 21-year-old Davenport man was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court, Davenport, to 10 years in prison after he was prosecuted in connection with a meth bust in Davenport earlier this year.

Travis L. Meier pleaded guilty to charges of conspiring to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine and possessing firearms in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

Meier was part of a three-person methamphetamine manufacturing conspiracy on Kimberly Downs Road in Davenport, Davenport Police Capt. Dale Sievert said.

As a result of the investigation, two handguns and two rifles were seized along with a methamphetamine lab, Sievert said.

Two co-defendants in this case, Leslie Hardin and Steven Gruezmacher, will be sentenced at a later date.
