DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — A man sentenced earlier this year to 1 ½ years in prison for a methamphetamine lab explosion in his Dickinson apartment has been ordered to pay $12,000 in restitution.

The Dickinson Press reports that defense attorney Kevin McCabe says Shane Cook will begin repaying the money after he completes substance abuse treatment in nine months and can become employed.

Cook pleaded guilty in July to felony reckless endangerment and felony drug possession in the Feb. 11 meth blast that injured Cook and forced an evacuation of the building.
