A Spartanburg man was sentenced to 10 years in jail after he was found guilty of selling meth during a jury trial he did not show up for, according to prosecutors.

Seventh Judicial Circuit Solicitor Barry Barnette said 40-year-old Charles Cain did not show up for his February trial where he was found guilty of trafficking methamphetamine.

Deputies said they were searching for a wanted person at a Dakota Street home in January 2012 when they found several plastic bottles that had multi-colored pellets in them and other items used to make nearly 18 grams of methamphetamine.

"Meth labs are increasingly becoming a problem in our community, and I'm glad to see Mr. Cain brought to justice," Assistant Solicitor Hayes Holliday said.

Barnette said Cain had a criminal record including possession of marijuana, fraudulent checks, false information to police, grand larceny and third-degree burglary.

Deputies arrested Cain on Tuesday.
