Meth Arrest

KSAL Staff - November 21, 2014 11:48 am

A Salina man is arrested after a small amount of meth is found in his home.

According to Lt. Bill Cox, police were alerted to an upswing in purchases of pseudoephedrine made by 32-year-old Matthew W. Brewer this week at a pharmacy.

State law allows citizens to buy 9-grams of the stimulant before local police are notified to investigate the circumstances behind the purchases.

Lt. Cox tells KSAL News that Brewer allowed a search of his home on Thursday and agents from the I-135/I-70 Drug Task force found a small amount of methanphetamine plus ingredients to make more in his residence at 1351 Osage Court. Brewer was arrested on multiple charges that include possession with intent to manufacture a controlled substance.

Police also searched his residence back in May after a similar report of pseudoephedrine purchases were made.

Suspected meth and meth making ingredients were seized during that search and sent to a lab for identification.
