Mt. Vernon man arrested on meth charges

WOODLAWN, IL — A 54-year-old Mt. Vernon man was arrested Wednesday on meth-related charges after the Mt. Vernon Police Department / Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office High Risk Team executed a search warrant at 210 North Main Street in Woodlawn.

The residence was secured, evidence was recovered, and the primary resident, 54-year-old David W. Lamar, was arrested and transported to the Jefferson County Jail. Lamar was taken to the Jefferson County Jail and appeared in Jefferson County Court Thursday. He was formally charged at that time with Class 2 felony delivery of 5 grams or less of methamphetamine, Class 3 felony possession of less than 5 grams of meth and being a felon in possession of a firearm, as well as Class 4 felony obstruction of justice/ destruction of evidence.
