Centralia man charged with possession of meth

MARION COUNTY, IL — A 46-year-old Centralia man was charged Friday morning in Marion County Court with delivery of between 15 and 100 grams of meth – a Class X felony. Christopher Taulbee was on parole from the Illinois Department of Corrections at the time of his arrest Wednesday.

Centralia police arrested him after a search following a traffic stop revealed approximately 34 grams of methamphetamine and baggies inside Taulbee’s vehicle. He was taken to the Marion County Jail along with his 28-year-old passenger Melanie Scerba who was wanted on an outstanding $5,000 Clinton County warrant for failure to appear warrant on a possession of dangerous drugs charge. Taulbee was released to parole in November 2021 after having served approximately two of a seven year sentence for Class 1 felony possession of between 15 and 100 grams of meth. He was additionally released from the Marion County Jail last week after posting bail on a case charging him with Class 3 felony being a felon in possession of a weapon and misdemeanor possession of a hypodermic syringe.
