Odin Man With Earlier Meth Conviction Charged Under New State Law

By Bruce Kropp

A 29-year-old Odin man has been charged under a new state law with the felony offense of unlawful possession of meth precursors without a prescription. Joshua Arnold of North Wood Street was arrested by sheriff's deputies who found him in possession of pseudoephedrine.

Marion County State's Attorney Matt Wilzbach says possession of items used in the manufacture of meth is now illegal for anyone with a prior methamphetamine conviction unless they have a medical prescription.

Bond was set at $25,000.

The public defender was appointed to represent Wood.
