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

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

A 31-year-old Centralia man has pleaded guilty to two methamphetamine charges in order to get into the Marion County Drug Court program.  

Jeffrey Lutz of South Marion Street admitted to participation in meth manufacturing under 15 grams and unlawful possession of meth manufacturing.  Both charges stem from an incident last October where a meth lab and a backpack of meth making materials were found in a van parking in the 1,000 block of South Marion Street in Centralia.  

Police had initially gone to the home after receiving a complaint about a suspicious oder coming from the residence.  Lutz reportedly admitted at the time all the items belonged to him.  

If Lutz successfully completes the drug court program, the charges will be dropped against him.  If he fails the program, the case will move to sentencing.
