IL man sentenced in connection to meth charges

WEST FRANKFORT, IL (KFVS) -

The Jackson County State’s Attorney announced today that a West Frankfort man was sentenced in Jackson County Circuit Court to the Department of Corrections for unlawful possession of methamphetamine manufacturing materials.

Caleb Ray Grant, 25, was convicted of unlawful possession of methamphetamine manufacturing materials, following a plea of guilty on June 24, 2015.

He was sentenced to serve forty-two months in the Illinois Department of Corrections followed by a term of two years of mandatory supervised release.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred on April 9, 2015, when officers from the Murphysboro Police Department conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle with no front registration plate.

The driver of the vehicle, Caleb Ray Grant, was found to have outstanding warrants.

Grant was placed under arrest, and his vehicle was inventoried prior to being towed.

Officers located a backpack in the back seat of the vehicle containing all items necessary for the making of methamphetamine, except for pseudoephedrine.

Items included lithium batteries, coffee filters, Coleman fuel, liquid fire, funnel, and tubing.

The defendant later admitted to officers that the items belonged to him and that he was intending to use them to manufacture methamphetamine.

This investigation was conducted by the Murphysboro Police Department.
