Operation Speed Trap Nets Nine Arrests

Nine low-to-mid level people were charged with possession of methamphetamine or possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver. 


One of the suspects, Michael Kline, had an outstanding warrant. 


The Taylorville Police Emergency Response Team includes members of the Kincaid and Assumption Police Departments served three separate search warrants. 


The Taylorville Police Department received information on these three houses and Chief Wheeler says they took quick action. 


Police Chief Dwayne Wheeler says that the department worked with the state's attorney to obtain search warrants. The warrants uncovered several grams of meth, along with scales and baggies.


“We want all of our neighborhoods drug-free,” Wheeler said. “The city will not tolerate these so-called houses in our community… we are still looking for more subjects.”


Wheeler thanked the States Attorney and the Kincaid and Assumption Police Departments for their efforts.
