Fairfield man arrested with nearly 30 grams of crystal meth in his possession during traffic stop

WAYNE COUNTY, IL — A 42-year-old Fairfield man was arrested this week after a traffic stop in Wayne County reportedly revealed nearly 30 grams of methamphetamine in his vehicle. Robert Allison was taken into custody after Wayne County Sheriff’s deputies field tested and weighed three large crystals reportedly found in a baggie inside his vehicle and the test showed positive for meth.

Deputies also reportedly discovering nearly $1,000 in cash in the vehicle and took Allison to the Wayne County Jail on charges of Possession of Methamphetamine and Possession of Methamphetamine with Intent to Deliver. At the time of his arrest, Allison was already facing Class X and Class 1 meth-related felony charges in Wayne County and was in court last week on the January 2021 case. Wayne County had been considering placing Allison in Drug Court on the charges; however, and Edwards County judge has rejected that idea. Allison is facing a Class 1 felony meth-delivery charge in Edwards County following a May arrest in that jurisdiction.

The weight of the crystals totaled approximately 28 grams.
