SIEG makes another meth bust in Marion

Posted by on Tuesday, July 9th, 2019 @ 1:01 pm.

MARION, Ill. – An impressive meth bust was carried out in the city of Marion Monday, courtesy one of downstate’s drug enforcement groups.

Southern Illinois Enforcement Group (SIEG) effected the bust yesterday, Monday, July 8, 2019.

Taken into custody was Zachary Roper, 25 of Centralia, following which agents with SIEG seized a whopping 56 grams of crystal meth.

What Roper was doing in Marion from Centralia, which is hours away up north, can likely be explained by the fact that Interstate 57 – which makes the distance between the two cities easy to travel, as it connects them – has become not only a dangerous highway for traffic, but allegedly a drug highway for dope trafficking.

Whatever the case, Roper is now in the custody of the Williamson County Jail awaiting his first hearing. SIEG stated they had assistance with Roper’s apprehension from the sheriff’s department, as well as Illinois State Police out of District 13 DuQuoin.
