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.
