A man was arrested last week in Rushville after law enforcement officials discovered over 400 grams of substances containing meth in a garage.
Edward P. "Teddy" Wrench, 27, was arrested Wednesday, Dec. 5 after the discovery was made on his friend's property. He was charged with possession of methamphetamine pre-cursors, participation in meth manufacturing and aggravated meth manufacturing.
Wrench was also charged with possession of a firearm without a FOID card.
Members of the Illinois State Investigative Unit went to the residence Dec. 5 to talk to Wrench about an incident involving a firearm. When investigators searched the home for more firearms, evidence indicating a meth lab was discovered.
The West Central Drug Task Force was then called in to investigate and found the meth products. Schuyler County Sheriff Don Schieferdecker says Wrench was not living at the residence but did admit the meth materials were his.
Wrench remains lodged in the Schuyler County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
