Bradley Jay Glewwe, 34, of Reno, Nev., was driving a vehicle pulled over by a Minnesota State Patrol trooper on Aug. 20, 2013, between the Clarks Grove and Geneva exits of I-35.

Court documents stated he was traveling with two others to the St. Paul area, where they planned to sell the the drug. They had purchased it for $10,000 in the Reno area, and were planning to sell it for about $30,000.

Along with the meth, troopers found marijuana pipes, a meth pipe, a digital scale and more than $10,000 in cash in the car.

Glewwe told State Patrol troopers it was his second time traveling to St. Paul to sell meth.

He pleaded guilty last month to one count of second-degree drug possession, a felony, and will be required to serve two-thirds of his sentence in prison, while the remainder will be spent on supervised release.

Co-defendant Edward Ben Rourke, also of Reno, was sentenced to four years in prison earlier this year. A second passenger, Rourke’s wife, was not charged.

Freeborn County District Court Judge Ross Leuning gave Glewwe credit for 119 days already spent in the Freeborn County jail.
