Investigators say Stigney had methamphetamine and a double-edged knife over five inches long in his possession.

He pleaded guilty to 3rd degree burglary, intimidation with a dangerous weapon, and possession of meth-2nd offense. Stigney was given five years on the first two counts, to be served consecutively for a total of 10 years, and two years to be served concurrently for the drug possession.
