MARION, Ill. - A guy who was only just arrested a few weeks ago in neighboring Jackson County on meth-related charges got a surprise Monday when the Marion Police Department Narcotics Unit got him on basically the same thing in Williamson County.

A press release by the MPDNU advises that on Monday (July 1, 2019) an investigation by MPDNU led to the execution of a search warrant in the 1300 block of W. Central Street in Marion.

During that event, Joshua Newsom was arrested and charged with Possession of 15-100 grams of Crystal Ice Methamphetamine with the Intent to Deliver, Unlawful Use of a Weapon by a Convicted Felon, Unlawful Possession of Firearm Ammunition by a Convicted Felon and Possession of a Controlled Substance (5 counts).

MPDNU noted that Newsom was arrested in Jackson County on May 26 for Armed Violence, Delivery of 15-100 grams of Meth, Possession of 15-100 grams of Meth, Unlawful Use of a Weapon by a Convicted Felon and Possession of a Controlled Substance (2 counts).

Court records show Newsom has been set for a preliminary hearing on July 29 in Williamson County; and his next appearance in Jackson is set for July 22...so he's going to be a busy fella for awhile.
