Police say it has been years in the making, but Knox County's 'Most Wanted' criminal is now facing federal prison time in relation to a recent Galesburg drug bust.

A grand jury has charged 49-year-old Steven M. Cramer with a single count of conspiracy to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine, over the last four years.

Cramer, of the 800 block of Abingdon Street, is charged along with Amanda Jo Davis, 31, 100 block of Arthur Street; Lloyd L. Bell, 45, of 1300 block of Rona Drive; and Jeremy N. Epperson, 38, of 1000 block of Lyman Street. Davis, Bell and Epperson also face the same charge as Cramer.

The indictments were announced in a Thursday morning press conference. Area law enforcement agencies credited cooperation as the reason the alleged meth manufacturing conspiracy was brought down.

"Anytime that you have a group of individuals that are involved in distributing meth for a particular individual, it's huge." Knox County Sheriff David Clague said local police and county detectives have been working on the Cramer case for several years.

"Without that bond between law enforcement and the community, it's tough to get anything accomplished."

Now, local law enforcement is breathing a sigh of relief -- pleased to get an alleged drug conspiracy off the streets.
