Man and woman busted with 50 grams of meth

On Aug. 9, Illinois authorities arrested a man and a woman for allegedly possessing crystal methamphetamine with the intent to deliver. The arrests took place in Warren County at around 12:30 p.m.

According to the Galesburg Police Department, the defendants, a 32-year-old Monmouth man and a 23-year-old Roseville woman, were driving a vehicle on East Main Street on Aug. 8 when an officer passed them and tried to confirm that the vehicle's driver matched the registration. This prompted the driver of the vehicle to slow down and pull into the parking lot of an inn on North Public Square. The officer checked to see if the defendants were registered guests at the inn and discovered that they weren't. He then approached them and asked to search the vehicle. The male defendant reportedly declined his request. A police dog was then brought to the scene and allegedly indicated that drugs were in the vehicle. The vehicle was seized, and a search warrant was obtained the following day.

A search of the vehicle allegedly yielded a backpack containing 51.6 grams of crystal meth. The search also uncovered a digital scale, suspected drug packaging materials, a police scanner, various prescription pills and cash. The defendants were taken into custody and charged with felony possession with the intent to deliver methamphetamine between 15 and 100 grams, felony possession of methamphetamine between 15 and 100 grams and four counts of possession of a controlled substance less than 15 grams.

Serious drug offenses can lead to harsh consequences for those who are convicted. However, it may be possible to avoid conviction by contacting a criminal defense attorney for help. An attorney may work to protect a defendant's legal rights, challenge the prosecution's case and strive to get the charges reduced or dismissed.
