He sentenced June 11 by Beltrami County District Judge Shari Schluchter. He pleaded guilty to the charge May 1.

According to the criminal complaint, Olson was arrested on Nov. 16, 2011, after a Bemidji police officer observed him driving a vehicle that slid diagonally as it tried to stop for a signal light in Bemidji.

Olson, identified as the driver, was arrested on outstanding felony warrants. The vehicle did not have insurance, so the police officer arranged for a tow.

An inventory of the vehicle, according to the complaint, revealed a bottle of Coleman fuel, a bottle of drain clearer and three boxes of allergy medication containing pseudoephedrine, all precursors for the manufacturing of meth.

Additionally, officers seized a white straw with white residue and a plastic container with pseudoephedrine, solvents and chemicals, according to the complaint. Tests determined the mixture was, in fact, meth.
