A Quincy man arrested last year for allegedly distributing meth is now facing federal meth charges.
The Adams County Sheriff's Office is reporting that Scott E. Roan, 41, was arrested Wednesday morning on federal charges of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
Roan was originally arrested in July of 2012 and charged in state court for two counts of methamphetamine precursors 30-150 grams and one count of methamphetamine delivery. According to Sheriff Brent Fischer, the Adams County State's Attorney's Office allowed the case to be dismissed so Roan could be prosecuted in federal court.
Authorities will transfer Roan to Springfield for a first appearance in court where he will be arraigned.
Multiple law enforcement agencies assisted in the investigation including the West Central Illinois Task Force, the US Marshal's Service, the Central IL Violent Fugitive Task Force, the Meth Response Team and the Quincy Police Department.
