An 18-year old Lahmansville resident was arrested on Tuesday pursuant to an Indictment returned by a Federal Grand Jury on Aug. 21, officials said.
According to U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, Andrew Carr was named in an 8-count indictment charging him with one count of manufacturing methamphetamine; one count of possession of material used in the manufacture of methamphetamine; and six counts of possession of pseudoephedrine knowing it would be used to manufacture methamphetamine.
Carr appeared before Magistrate Judge John S. Kaull Tuesday and was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshals pending a detention hearing to be held on Nov. 8.
If convicted, Carr faces up to 20 years imprisonment and a $1,000,000 fine on the manufacturing charge; 10 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine on the possession of material charge; and, 20 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine on each of the possession of pseudoephedrine charges.
This case will be prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen D. Warner and was investigated by the United States Forest Service.
It should be noted that the charges contained in the indictment are merely accusations and not evidence of guilt, and that each defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
