A Newton man has been sentenced to three years in prison on methamphetamine-related charges.

Jasper County State's Attorney Kevin Parker said 24-year-old Trevor Lindemann was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to possession of methamphetamine-manufacturing materials.  Parker said the charge stems from Lindemann's April 4 arrest when law enforcement officers entered a residence in Wheeler to execute arrest warrants on Lindemann and his co-defendant Jessica Dilley.  Police had also sought and obtained a search warrant for the residence.

At the time of his arrest, Lindemann was wanted in Jasper County for failing to appear in court on an unrelated case, while Dilley was wanted on a warrant following her arrest returned in March by a Jasper County Grand Jury.

According to Parker, following the arrests and and during the search of the residence, police seized various items of methamphetamine manufacturing materials commonly used in a "one-pot method" methamphetamine lab.  Those materials were safely processed and secured by members of the Illinois Methamphetamine Response Team.

Dilley remains in custody in Jasper County Jail in Newton and is next scheduled in court June 26.

Parker again complimented the multi-agency drug interdiction cooperative effort by the Newton City Police Department, Jasper County Sheriff's Department and the Southeastern Illinois Drug Task Force.
