A Pana man is facing federal drug charges after a raid Friday uncovered methamphetamine at the home near Pana Lake. 49-year-old Michael E. Williams was taken into custody on the federal warrant for Unlawful Distribution of Methamphetamine.
Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp says Williams had over 100 grams of meth in his possession along with firearms. He says this arrest takes an area meth dealer off of the streets.
Kettelkamp says the Central Illinois Enforcement Group does plenty of behind the scenes work, but raids like this are the fruits of their labor.
The case remains under investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Central District of Illinois, the DEA, ATF, and the CIEG.
