Carbondale man sentenced on meth charges

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

A Carbondale, Illinois man was sentenced on Wednesday, Dec. 10 on methamphetamine charges.

Andrew L. Kipp, 25, was sentenced in Jackson County court on charges of unlawful possession of methamphetamine manufacturing materials.

According to Jackson County State's Attorney Michael C. Carr, on Feb. 23 an officer from the Carbondale Police Department stopped the defendant for a routine traffic violation.

They found that he was staying at an area hotel and received consent to search his hotel room.

Inside that hotel room they say they found various items that are used in making meth, including plastic tubing, empty Sudafed blister packs, empty Sudafed wrappers and an oxygen tank that had been filled with anhydrous ammonia.

Carr said the defendant was originally placed on probation, but violated that probation and was resentenced on Nov. 24 to four years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

This sentence will be served as impact incarceration.

He will be subject to two years mandatory supervised release from the Department of Corrections.

This case was investigated by the Carbondale Police Department and was prosecuted by Assistant State's Attorney Mark Hamrock.
