Quincy man arrested for meth in November now faces federal charges


A Quincy man now faces federal meth charges.

The West Central Illinois Task Force originally arrested 44-year-old Troy Cleesen on Nov. 19, 2012. Authorities say they found a shake and bake meth lab and finished meth in his apartment near 8th and Broadway.

The state charges were dismissed by Adams County State's Attorney Jon Barnard so the case could proceed to federal court.

Authorities say Cleesen has two prior felony convictions and is eligible for a sentence of up to 30 years in the federal bureau of prisons.
