Bond has been set at $250,000 for a 23-year-old Centralia man facing five Class X felony charges of aggravated delivery of methamphetamine from a protected structure.
If released on bond, Blake Ross was ordered not to consume or possess illegal substances and be subject to random testing. The bond had been agreed upon by the prosecution and defense attorneys prior to the Tuesday hearing in Clinton County Court.
Ross’ preliminary hearing on the charges was set for October 2nd. That’s the same as the other four arrested during a drug bust at two neighboring homes at 12 and 10 Randolph Drive last Thursday.
Ross was free on $3,230 bond at the time of his arrest on Thursday. He had been arrested in April on a Class X felony charge of delivery of between 15 and 100 grams of meth and possession of the same amount of meth.
