Warrant served on sythetic drug charges

A Vandalia man who was charged in April with two synthetic drug offenses was arrested on those charges last week.
According to Fayette County Jail records, an arrest warrant was served on Jerry W. Weldon Jr., 44, 120 E. Jefferson St., and he was processed at the jail last Tuesday.
In April, the office of Fayette County State’s Attorney Joshua Morrison filed information charging Weldon with two felony offenses.
The first count alleges that on Jan. 30, Weldon committed the offense of distribution of a misbranded drug. That charge alleges the distribution of synthetic marijuana, “AK-47,” which contains XLR-11, a misbranded drug.
That offense is a Class 2 felony punishable by up to seven years in prison and/or a fine of up to $25,000.
The second count charges Weldon with possession of a look-alike drug, with the intent to deliver. It alleges that he knowingly distributed AK-47 to another individual.
That offense is a Class 3 felony punishable by up to five years in prison and/or a fine of up to $25,000.
Weldon’s bond was set at $35,000.
