In his second conviction for the crime, a Pekin man will serve a 10-year federal prison term for making meth in a mobile lab.

Michael Trumpy, 34, was sentenced last week in a meth conspiracy case involving two other people who were prosecuted in Tazewell County Circuit Court.

The three were charged in May 2016 after a South Pekin man complained to police about people who had parked their van and were “dumping junk” on his rural property, according to court records.

Officers arrested Trumpy and South Pekin residents Daniel Brackney, 34, and Stephanie Martin, 33, on misdemeanor trespassing charges. Trumpy and Brackney posted bond for their release before police searched the van.

Inside it they found more than 75 grams of methamphetamine in its liquid form, along with items used to make the highly addictive drugs, records stated. Trumpy and Brackney were found and arrested 10 days later.

Martin, who had made purchases of non-prescription medicine containing meth’s key ingredient shortly before the arrests, was sentenced last September to six years in state prison for manufacturing meth as a Class X felony.

Brackney received a four-year probation term in July 2016 for his guilty plea to a lower meth-making felony.

Trumpy served a five-year state prison term for his conviction in 2009 to making meth with a portable lab in his car. He must serve at least 85 percent of his federal prison term.
