A Taylorville woman has been arrested for possession of various drugs. 47 year old Cara A. Montgomery of Taylorville was arrested Monday night and charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, possession of cocaine and obstruction.
The Community Action Team had been investigating Montgomery and were able to get enough probable cause for a search warrant. States Attorney Wes Poggenpohl assisted in obtaining the search warrant.
The Community Action Team conducted the search warrant Monday night on the 400 block of East Adams. The team recovered several pieces of evidence that led to Montgomery’s arrest. Montgomery already had a warrant for her arrest for failure to appear on another drug charge.
Taylorville Police Chief Dwayne Wheeler thanks everyone involved and the input received from citizens in “getting this poison off our streets.”
