Harrisburg man sentenced after pleading guilty to meth related charges

SALINE COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

A Harrisburg man was sentenced Wednesday to nine years in prison after pleading guilty to meth-making related charges.

According to the Saline County State's Attorney's Office, Joseph E. Baldwin, 30, of Harrisburg, Illinois was sentenced Wednesday to nine years in the Illinois Department of Corrections after pleading guilty to unlawful possession of methamphetamine manufacturing material.

The state's attorney says Michelle M. Baldwin, 23, of Harrisburg, Illinois was sentenced on Nov. 2 to three years behind bars for pleading guilty to unlawful possession of methamphetamine manufacturing material.

Harrisburg police led the investigation after receiving a tip from Wal-Mart loss prevention about the purchase of suspected meth manufacturing material in September 2011.

The state's attorney's office says the loss prevention officer gave a description of Baldwin's vehicle. After stopping and searching the vehicle after a traffic stop, officers found iodized salt, coffee filters, lithium batteries and cold compresses purchased at Wal-Mart.

The items were going to be used to make meth later that day in Eldorado, according to suspect testimony.
