Spartanburg, SC -

A man from Spartanburg was convicted in absentia of trafficking meth in February and was sentenced on Thursday.

Seventh Circuit Solicitor's Office spokesman Murray Glenn stated that Charles Allen Cain, 40, was sentenced to 10 years in prison by Circuit Court Judge Lawton McIntosh.

According to Glenn, Cain failed to appear for his trial in February and was subsequently convicted for having a meth lab inside his home. Cain was arrested earlier this week by Spartanburg County Sheriff's deputies on a bench warrant.

According to Glenn, Cain was arrested on January 7, 2012 at a home on Dakota Street. Spartanburg County Sheriff's deputies discovered Cain while they were searching for another person who was wanted on a Family Court bench warrant.

Cain told deputies that he did not know the person they were looking for, but he allowed them to search the home. In the process of the search, deputies found several plastic bottles that had multi-colored pellets inside and other items used to manufacture meth.  

"Meth Labs are increasingly becoming a problem in our community, and I'm glad to see Mr. Cain brought to justice," Assistant 7th Circuit Solicitor Hayes Holliday said.

Deputies determined that the meth making components equated to nearly 18 grams of meth. Cain has prior criminal convictions for possession of marijuana, fraudulent checks, providing false information to police, grand larceny and third-degree burglary.
