A Taylorville man was arrested Tuesday morning after the Taylorville Police Department, Illinois State Police, and the Central Illinois Enforcement Group executed a state authorized search warrant in the 1000 block of East Park Street.  Police entered the residence of James J. Humphrey and found approximately 15 grams of ICE methamphetamine, 133 grams of cannabis, Xanax pills, and approximately 2.5 grams of psilocybin mushrooms.  Authorities also found scales, paraphernalia, and packaging materials for distribution.  Humphrey was taken into custody without incident and was lodged at the Christian County Correctional Center.  At the time of the search warrant, Humphrey was out on a $25,000.00 cash bond he already posted when he was taken into custody less than two months ago after another search warrant was executed resulting in authorities finding methamphetamine and other items previously.
