OCEAN CITY — An Ocean City man arrested in March after police located a methamphetamine lab in a room at a bayfront hotel at 59th Street pleaded guilty this week and was sentenced to five years, all of which was suspended but the time he spent in jail awaiting trial.
In March, Ocean City Police arrested Andrew Windsor, 29, of Ocean City, for allegedly operating a meth lab in one of the units of the Coconut Malorie Hotel on 59th Street. On Wednesday, Windsor pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess controlled dangerous substance (CDS) production equipment used to manufacture methamphetamine and was sentenced to five years. The judge then suspended all of the sentence but the time Windsor spent in jail awaiting trial, which was a little over six months.
Around 1 p.m. on March 13, Ocean City police and fire personnel responded to the hotel on 59th Street to investigate an individual possibly in possession of materials used to manufacture methamphetamine. OCPD officers responded to a room within the hotel and met with the suspect, identified as Windsor.
