Plymouth man caught once again with meth

RURAL CERRO GORDO COUNTY – A Plymouth man who has been caught with meth before was caught in the act one more time this weekend.

A Cerro Gordo county deputy conducted a traffic stop on the evening of Friday, November 24 near Raven Avenue and 330th Street. As a result of the traffic stop and subsequent investigation, the driver, 45-year-old Scott Allan Shafer of Plymouth, was arrested for felony possession of meth 3rd offense, and felony possess and conveying contraband, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving charges. He was taken to the county jail, where he remains held at this time.

A Cerro Gordo county deputy conducted a traffic stop on the evening of September 30, 2016, on Mason City’s North End and arrested Shafer for felony meth possession. He took a plea deal to a lesser charge.

Shafer was first caught with meth back on September 11, 2015, when Hampton police arrested him. He pled guilty in February of 2016 to first-offense possession of meth and was sentenced to 2 days in jail, had his license revoked, and was ordered to pay $901.56 in fines and court fees.

Shafer was caught a second time on April 16, 2016, during a traffic stop at the 500 block of North Delaware by a Cerro Gordo deputy. Allegedly, during a consent search, Shafer was found to have several baggies with off-white substance suspected to be methamphetamine inside of them. The baggies each contained a small amount of methamphetamine. He received a short jail sentence and court costs after a plea deal.
