A Grand Junction man was recently sentenced to probation for a June 2017 incident.

According to court documents, 57-year-old Douglas Shutt pled guilty to a Class D Felony for failure to affix tax stamp and serious misdemeanors for possession of prescription drug and possession of meth. He had his prison sentences suspended for each count and was placed on supervised probation with the Department of Corrections for two-years, with each charge to run consecutively.

The judgement stems from an incident on June 14th. Court documents show that information was turned over from an informant to the Greene County Sheriff’s office about two bags of marijuana being at Shutt’s residence in the 900 block of Hagar Street in Grand Junction. A search warrant was executed on June 14th, and several drug-related items were recovered. The Criminalistics Laboratory in Ankeny confirmed the results on November 22nd.

As per the plea agreement, the state dismissed two serious misdemeanors for possession of a controlled substance and six serious misdemeanors for possession of prescription drugs. He was also ordered to pay over $1,000 in fines, surcharges and victim restitution.
