A 35-year-old Plymouth man was sentenced to 15 years in prison Wednesday, March 19, for making meth across the street from an elementary school.

Peter Devine admitted to police that he made meth inside his house directly across the street from Webster Elementary School, The Elkhart Truth's news partner WNDU reported.

Devine had been in jail nearly a year before the sentencing after Plymouth police received an anonymous tip in February 2013, which led to an investigation and ultimately Devine's arrest.

"It will be good to get him on his way to the Department of Corrections," Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Nelson Chipman said."He is no longer a direct threat to our community and its children, and won’t be for a long time to come."
