Centralia Man Pleads Guilty to Meth Charges To Get In Drug Court

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

A 37-year-old Centralia man has pleaded guilty to three methamphetamine related charges to be admitted to the Marion County Drug Court program.  

Billy Cameron of Johnson Street pleaded guilty to a Class X felony charge of aggravated participation in meth manufacturing, unlawful possession of a meth precursor and meth manufacturing waste.   All three charges stem from an incident at his home on August 10th when a Marion County Sheriff's Deputy went to his home looking to arrest him on two outstanding warrants.  After spotting a cannabis joint in plain view on a dresser, the deputy received permission to search from another occupant.   Cameron then admitted to having a 'shake and bake' meth lab in a soda bottle.  

If he successfully completes the drug court program, the charges against Cameron will be dropped.  If he fails, the case immediately moves to the sentencing phase.
