Akron man admits to tampering with evidence of Randolph meth lab

By Dave O'Brien | staff writer Published:

An Akron man caught up in a methamphetamine lab investigation in December 2011 has pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence of drug crimes.

Joshua Galloway, 33, pleaded guilty to one count of tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony, before Portage County Common Pleas Judge John Enlow.

Galloway could face a maximum of three years in prison. A pre-sentence investigation is pending.

Galloway and two other men, Robert B. Davis, 43, and his son, Colton R. Davis, 19, were initially charged with making methamphetamine on Dec. 26, 2011, at their home at 5054 Waterloo Road in Randolph.

A fire at the residence led to the discovery of the drug operation by the Portage County Drug Task Force. Robert Davis later pleaded guilty to meth-related felony charges and is serving a three-year prison sentence. Colton Davis also pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony, and likely will receive probation as a sentence.

  • I guess we're suppose to guess how Galloway gained access to the Police Evidence Locker and tampered with evidence.
