One Pekin woman faces a lengthy prison term for allegedly possessing meth for sale and another, also from Pekin, was also charged following a police traffic stop.

Angel Plowman, 36, and Tiffany McAlum, 37, were found with 23 grams of the highly addictive drug in its crystal form, according to indictments a Tazewell County grand jury returned last week.

Plowman was charged with possessing more than 15 grams of meth with intent to deliver, a Class X felony punishable by 6 to 30 years in prison. McAlum could serve up to seven years if convicted of possessing the drug for sale as a Class 2 felony.

A Pekin police officer stopped the car Plowman was driving for a traffic infraction on April 7 and, after speaking with her and McAlum, summoned a K-9 unit who alerted the officer to drugs in the vehicle, a prosecutor’s court affidavit stated.

A search revealed 18.5 grams of meth in Plowman’s clothes and purse. In a handbag on the floor of the passenger seat where McAlum had sat, officers found three more baggies of meth totaling 4.5 grams along with a digital scale and several empty plastic baggies, the affidavit stated.

Plowman posted a $3,000 cash bond and McAlum $500 for their release. They’re next due in court Thursday.
