During a probation check conducted by the Iowa Department of Corrections High Risk Unit, a Burlington man was taken into custody.
During the check, at the home of 32-year-old Loran Cheely on South 10th Street, HRU officers found several items consistent with methamphetamine production. The Southeast Iowa Narcotics Task Force obtained a warrant and executed a search at about 2pm. They found packaging materials, pseudoephdrine tablets, lithium batteries, filter materials, generators, and “one pot” methamphetamine cooking devices.
Cheely was taken into custody and is being held without bond on a probation violation. Additional charges are pending.
