Mt. Vernon woman pleads guilty to meth delivery, other drug charges dropped

MT. VERNON, IL — A 34-year-old Mt. Vernon woman was sentenced Wednesday in Jefferson County Court to 6-years in prison after she pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of methamphetamine delivery. Dana Ince was arrested in February as part of an ongoing investigation into drugs in the Mt. Vernon area.

The Mt. Vernon Police Department/Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office High Risk Team executed a drug search warrant at 12188 East Oakton Road Lot #1 in rural Mt. Vernon and arrested Ince and, 35-year-old Antonio T. Foulks. Investigators searched the residence and reportedly discovered evidence that led to both Foulks and Ince being charged with Aggravated Meth Delivery between 15-100 grams, Possession of a Schedule 2 Substance with Intent to Deliver, and Possession of Drug Equipment – both Class X felonies. Bail remains to be set on those charges.

Foulks also had an active Jefferson County warrant for Class 1 felony Criminal Sexual Assault of a family member. Foulks is next due in court next week for a final pre-trial hearing in the cases against him.

On Wednesday, Ince pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of Class 1 felony delivery of between 5 and 15 grams of meth in exchange for the other charge being dismissed.
