Police: Men Bought Cold Medicine to Make Meth
Police said the men intended to sell the precursor drug to a meth cook.
Two men face criminal charges after police found pseudoephedrine in their car during a traffic stop last December.
Matthew Lohman, 23, of the 4500 block of Schumacher Road in High Ridge, and Shawn Cramer, 22, of House Springs, MO, both were charged last week with possessing a methamphetamine precursor drug with intent to make meth.
St. Louis County Police said that following a traffic stop Dec. 3 on Hawkins Road near San Luis Rey Parkway, they found several boxes of Wal-Phed, which contained pseudoephedrine. According to the police report, Lohman and Cramer said they bought the cold medication so they could re-sell it to a meth cook.
Bond for Lohman was set at $5,000. Bond for Cramer was set at $7,500.
