A Missouri man arrested for meth trafficking near Marblehead pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Quincy.
Court records reveal 24-year-old Cameron Carothers, of Shelbina, pleaded guilty to two meth trafficking charges, meth delivery and possession of meth.
Carothers' case now heads to trial scheduled for Feb. 10.
The West Central Illinois Drug Task Force reported Carothers was arrested Sept. 24 along with 30-year-old Paula Schweiter, of Shelbina, and 29-year-old April Darnell, of Hannibal. All three were arrested on charges of methamphetamine trafficking, unlawful delivery of meth and unlawful use of weapon.
Authorities say they were arrested after delivering meth to an undercover officer. During a search of the vehicle, officers reported finding a loaded handgun, meth paraphernalia, drug packaging, drug records and prescription drugs.
Schweiter pleaded not guilty in October and is scheduled to go to trial Dec. 9. Darnell is yet to be arraigned and is scheduled to appear in court again Nov. 12.
