Sydney Paul Scott (mug shot SCSO)

A man who was charged with two drug offenses in earlier this year has pleaded guilty and sentenced to five years probation.

Authorities say Sydney Paul Scott, 22, of Aurora, was arrested after a confidential informant tipped them about a drug buy that was getting ready to happen on February 6th.  The CI said there would be meth hidden in a pack of cigarettes that Scott was going to pass to him.

When an officer attempted to stop Scott he threw something from the vehicle.  When the item was retrieved, it was a pack of cigarettes with methamphetamine in them.

Judge Carr Woods ordered, Scott, who was charged with distribution of a controlled substance, to serve 15 days shock time, but that order was stayed.  Scott was ordered to obtain treatment while on probation.
