A Sparta man will spend time in prison after a traffic stop last spring turned up components of a mobile meth lab in his vehicle.

Derek John Rider, 31, was traveling along 17 Mile in Cedar Springs, east of US131, on May 9, 2015, when he was pulled over by police. They found methamphetamine and items to make it in his vehicle.

Rider pleaded guilty last month to manufacturing meth, and in exchange, a charge of maintaining a meth lab involving hazardous waste and a habitual offender charge were dropped. He was sentenced to a minimum of four years and three months and a maximum of 30 years in prison.

Rider was previously convicted in 2014 on a charge of possession of methamphetamine and sentenced to two years probation. Most recently he has served time in the Kent County jail for operating while intoxicated and operating while intoxicated with a blood alchol content over .17.
