— A Brodhead man waived his preliminary hearing and pleaded not guilty to methamphetamine charges Wednesday in Green County Court.

Roy Van Brocklin, 32, was arrested Friday in Brodhead.


The court scheduled a Tuesday district attorney conference, and Van Brocklin remains jailed on a $5,000 cash bond.


He faces charges of possession with intent to manufacture methamphetamine, possession of materials for manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of waste from manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.


He also was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.


Court records allege Van Brocklin had about 5 grams of meth in a plastic bag, an ephedrine or pseudoephedrine product, red phosphorus, lithium metal, sodium metal and ammonia in his truck when stopped by Brodhead police officers at about 3 p.m. Friday.


He also had flammable liquid, corrosive acid, tubing, containers, iodine, antifreeze, aluminum foil, coffee filters and a written recipe to make meth in his possession, as well as marijuana and a glass pipe and wooden pipe in his possession, according to court documents.
