      The United States Attorney TMs Office announced today that five people have been indicted on multiple drug and weapons charges involving their alleged activities between January 2007 and April 2010 in Lewis and Knox Counties. They were indicted in April, but the indictment remained suppressed until their arrests late last week by law enforcement officers from the Lewis and Knox County Sheriff TMs departments, U.S. Marshal TMs, ATF and the Missouri Highway Patrol.

      Indicted:

      Nathan Allen, 28, LaBelle, Mo.;

      Kimberly Ingalls, 39, Quincy, Ill.; and

      William Ingalls, 48, Quincy, Ill.

      Robert Mauck was indicted by a federal grand jury on one felony count of conspiracy to possess pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture methamphetamine, one felony count of possession of pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture methamphetamine, one felony count of being a previously convicted felon in possession of ammunition. Additionally, Mauck is charged with a forfeiture count, which, if convicted, will require the forfeiture of cash and property derived from the illegal activity. Subject to forfeiture is four properties on Highway V, Knox City, MO.

      Nathan Allen was indicted on one felony count of conspiracy to possess pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture methamphetamine and one felony count of being a previously convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

      Michael Kramer, Kimberly and William Ingalls were each indicted on one felony count of conspiracy to possess pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture methamphetamine.

      Each count of conspiracy to possess pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture methamphetamine and possession of pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture methamphetamine carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and/or fines up to $250,000. Being a previously convicted felon in possession of a firearm carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and/or fines up to $250,000.

      This case was investigated by the Lewis and Knox County Sheriff TMs Departments, the Northeast Missouri Drug Task Force, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, U.S. Marshal TMs Service, the Quincy, Ill. Police Department and the Missouri and Illinois State Highway Patrol. Assistant United States Attorney Noelle Collins is handing the case for the U.S. Attorney TMs Office.

      The charges set forth in an indictment are merely accusations, and each defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
