TOWN OF MONTICELLO — Two Shullsburg men were arrested Sunday after police discovered methamphetamine waste in a ditch fire.

Troy S. Glasgow, 32, and Gregg A. Marcotte, 34, face tentative charges of disposal of methamphetamine waste, which is a felony.

Glasgow and Marcotte were arrested after what the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department called “suspicious activity” was discovered in the area of East Charles Mound Lane and Wisconsin Lane Sunday around 5:10 p.m. The “suspicious activity” included a fire started in a ditch, according to the sheriff’s department.

“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 in a news release. “We encourage citizens to stay involved by promptly reporting suspicious activities in their neighborhoods.”

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.
