A New Florence man was sentenced to a state prison Wednesday for having firearms and methamphetamine manufacturing materials in his car.

Christopher Charles Adams Sr., 29, was sentenced to three to six years by Judge Rita Hathaway. He pleaded guilty to charges of possession with intent to manufacture, firearms not to be carried without a license, having a prohibited offensive weapon, operating a methamphetamine lab and related charges.

A vehicle Adams was driving in St. Clair was stopped by police on April 3 for speeding when investigators discovered a loaded shotgun, a handgun, meth-manufacturing items and boxes of ammunition, police said.
