Two arrested for disposing meth waste
Gregg Alexander Marcotte
Gregg Marcotte was arrested Jan. 19 in connection with a suspicious activity report received by the Lafayette County Sheriff's Department during which a fire started in a ditch was allegedly used to dispose of methamphetamine waste.

    Two residents of the city of Shullsburg were arrested as suspects for the Disposal of Methamphetamine Waste on Sunday, Jan. 19.
    Troy S. Glasgow, 32, and Gregg A. Marcotte, 34, both of Shullsburg, were arrested on criminal charges for the Disposal of Methamphetamine Waste, a class H felony, in connection with reports the Lafayette County Sheriff’s department received at 5:10 p.m. Sunday night about suspicious activity, said a news release from the Lafayette County Sheriff’s office.
    The reports claimed that suspicious activity, including a fire that had been started in a ditch along the roadway, was taking place in the area of E. Charles Mound Rd. and Wisconsin Lane, in Monticello Township in rural Shullsburg, according to the news release.
    Glasgow and Marcotte are currently being held in the Lafayette County Jail while they wait to appear in Lafayette County Circuit Court, said the news release.
    “These arrests would not have been possible without the observations and cooperation of the attentive citizens who alerted us,” said Lafayette County Sheriff Scott Pedley. “We encourage citizens to stay involved by promptly reporting suspicious activities in their neighborhoods,” he added. 
    The case will be referred to the Lafayette County District Attorney’s office for review and charging decisions.
    Glasgow was found guilty in Grant County Circuit Court of possession of methamphetamine in 2011 and was sentenced to one year in jail and fined $2,248.27, according to court records.
    Glasgow also pleaded guilty in Lafayette County Circuit Court in 2007 to a charge of possession of methamphetamine precursors and a charge of storing ammonia in an illegal container, according to court records. He was placed on three years probation.
