Perry County Man Sentenced For Methamphetamine Violation

On December 2, 2014, a Perry County, Illinois, man was sentenced in U.S. District Court for a methamphetamine violation, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced today.

Thomas D. Tindall, 21, of Willisville, who had previously pled guilty to a one-count indictment charging conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, was sentenced to 108 months in federal prison, to be followed by 3 years’ supervised release, and fined $250.00. Evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings established that Tindall was involved with co-defendant Seth Conway and others in the manufacture of methamphetamine. During a February 20, 2014, search of Tindall’s vehicle and residence, agents located methamphetamine, methamphetamine-making materials, and drug paraphernalia. At sentencing, the district court found that Tindall was responsible for the possession of 176 grams of pseudoephedrine. Tindall’s sentence was enhanced because he involved multiple juveniles in the methamphetamine offense. The offense occurred between 2012 and February 2014, in Jackson, Randolph, and Perry Counties. Co-defendant Conway has pled guilty and is awaiting sentencing.

The ongoing investigation is being conducted by the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, Perry County Sheriff’s Office, Coulterville Police Department, Randolph County Drug Task Force, Steeleville Police Department, Percy Police Department, Illinois State Police Methamphetamine Response Team, and Drug Enforcement Administration. The Randolph County State’s Attorney’s Office also assisted in the investigation.

The case is assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Amanda A. Robertson for prosecution.
