Denise Dalton, 49, of Akron and her son, Keith Dalton, 22, admitted in open court that they conspired with each other and two other suspects to purchase methamphetamine precursors for a meth lab.
They were arrested in October of 2013 after purchasing pseuoephedrine and other items including Drano, ammonium nitrate in cold pack form at Walgreens and at Dollar General in Plymouth and being unwanted guests at a local hotel. Keith Dalton attempted to purchase syringes but the clerk at the pharmacy told him that syringes were only available for patients who need insulin. He then inquired about the price of insulin. He was denied the purchase as he did not have a valid prescription.
The pair pleaded guilty in identical plea agreements with the state to conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. Their plea agreements called for a 10 year prison sentence with four years of the sentence suspended. Both Denise Dalton and Keith Dalton were given the opportunity to participate in intensive drug rehabilitation through the purposeful incarceration program while incarcerated. Upon their release from prison, they will be on reporting probation for one year.

U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly announced the reception of the grant on Monday afternoon which will allow the Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Anti-Methamphetamine Program to investigate activities related to the ongoing methamphetamine issue in the state.
Supporting continued funding for the COPS Anti-Methamphetamine Program and funding for the DEA’s Clandestine Drug Laboratory Cleanup Program was one of Donnelly’s priorities for the fiscal year 2015 federal appropriations.
