Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh announced today that late yesterday a jury found Danny Hamby, 31, and Bunny Lanik, 30, both of Manning Avenue in Akron, guilty on several charges stemming from an Akron meth lab bust earlier this year
Danny Hamby was convicted of:
Two counts of Illegal Manufacturing of Drugs, second-degree felonies
Two counts of Illegal Assembly or Possession of Chemicals for the Manufacture of Drugs, third-degree felonies
Bunny Lanik was convicted of:
Aggravated Possession of Drugs, a fifth-degree felony
Endangering Children, a third-degree felony
Illegal Manufacturing of drugs, a second-degree felony
Illegal Assembly or Possession of Chemicals for the Manufacture of Drugs, a third-degree felony
The Akron Police Department was watching Lanik’s home on February 22 after receiving complaints from neighbors of drug activity on the property and complaints from relatives of the children living there who were concerned about the family’s living conditions. Early that evening an officer observed and recorded Hamby and another man leave the house. Officers followed them, noticed a broken side-view mirror on their car and stopped them for a traffic violation. The driver consented to a search of the car after one of the officers detected a strong ammonia odor, which is consistent with methamphetamine. Officers found a bag containing a by-product and trash from manufacturing meth underneath the front passenger seat.
Officers then returned to the house and were allowed in by Lanik, who denied that Richard Costoff, who was known to also live at the house, was in the house at that time. Officers searched the property and discovered him in the basement. Costoff admitted to making meth and giving Hamby the bag of trash and by-product found in the car with him.
Costoff pleaded guilty to Aggravated Possession of Drugs, two counts of Endangering Children, Illegal Manufacturing of Drugs and Illegal Assembly or Possession of Chemicals for the Manufacture of Drugs in June. Judge Patricia Cosgrove sentenced Costoff to five years in prison.
Visiting Judge Ted Schneiderman will sentence Hamby and Lanik on Monday, November 7 at 9:00 a.m.
