Laona man faces meth chargesSubmitted: 07/22/2014
Story By Newswatch 12 Team


FOREST COUNTY - Prosecutors believe a Forest County man made meth and had other people buy ingredients for him.

36-year-old Shandon Tallier of Laona faces four felony charges.

Police became suspicious when Tallier bought ephedrine or pseudophedrine more than 50 times during the last year. Those are drugs commonly used to make meth.

Tallier was also blocked from buying the drugs more than 20 times in the last year. That's because he already bought more than the federal limit allows in a 30 day period.

Sheriff's deputies say Tallier, his 29-year-old girlfriend Lindsey Collins and Tallier's 33-year-old brother, David, bought ingredients in Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan to make meth. David Tallier and Lindsey Collins haven't been charged.
