Police: Several Meth-Making Materials Found in Cascade Man’s Truck

A Cascade man already on probation for meth possession is now facing as many as twenty years in prison after another arrest. Cascade Police stopped a truck 33-year-old Josh Koppes was driving last week. During the traffic stop, Koppes reportedly told the officer he had precursors, or materials used to make meth, in the vehicle. The officer reportedly found pseudoephedrine pills, engine starter fluid, and lithium batteries in the vehicle. Prosecutors say those items, as well as other items in the vehicle like empty plastic soda bottles, are consistent with the “shake and bake” method of mobile meth making. Koppes is facing four charges, all related to possessing meth precursors. Each charge carries a five-year prison term. Koppes had previously been arrested for meth possession in March of last year in Delaware County. He pled guilty to that charge, and had just been sentenced to a year of probation in December.
