Local man faces federal drugs, firearms charges
space
An Antigo man recently charged with multiple felonies involving methamphetamine and possession of a firearm by a felon, is now facing federal charges in the matter.

According to a news release from the United States Department of Justice, a federal grand jury on Tuesday returned a three-count indictment against Shane A. Tillman, 33, N1982 Crestwood Rd.

The indictment states Tillman is alleged to have conspired with others to distribute meth, and did so while in possession of a firearm. Tillman, a convicted felon, was prohibited from ever again possessing a firearm. He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted.

Tillman was arraigned before a federal magistrate judge on Thursday and remains in federal custody.

He was arrested on March 29 after authorities visited a Dorr Street residence in search of an individual with outstanding warrants.

They observed Tillman inside, who was on bond in another case for possession of meth, and he appeared to conceal something behind the couch he was seated at.

An officer located the item, which turned out to be a firearm.

A digital scale with meth residue was allegedly found on the couch near where he was seated, and a search warrant was obtained for Tillman’s vehicle, where authorities discovered two more digital scales with meth residue.

He was originally held here on a $3,000 cash bond, which was increased to $4,000 a week later after recorded jailhouse conversations between Tillman and another individual indicated he may been considering fleeing the area if he posted bail.

As the scope of investigation widened and the case became even more serious, the matter was turned over to federal authorities.

The case was investigated by the Langlade County Sheriff’s Department and the Antigo Police Department with assistance from the Brown County Drug Task Force.

I could not be more proud of our narcotics investigation team and the work done jointly with the Antigo Police Department and surrounding partners, Langlade County Sheriff Mark Westen said. We continue to do everything we can to combat the meth epidemic which is so burdensome to the community.

Assistant United States Attorney Daniel R. Humble is handling the prosecution of the case.
