MOUNT ZION — A 29-year-old Lovington man in possession of methamphetamine and knives lied about his name to officers during a traffic stop Friday morning, said Lt. Michael Foster of the Mount Zion Police Department.

Foster said the man was in possession of folding knives with blades longer than 3 inches and had less than 5 grams of methamphetamine when he was stopped at 11:27 a.m. in the 1300 block of Illinois 121.

Foster said that since the man is accused of being armed while committing felony meth possession, he is also facing a preliminary Class X felony charge of being armed with Category II weapons, Foster said.

The man was arrested on preliminary charges of possession of methamphetamine, obstructing justice/ destroying evidence for lying about his name and for being armed with Category II weapons.

All preliminary charges are subject to review by the Macon County State's Attorney's Office. He was being held in the Macon County Jail in lieu of $110,000 bond.
