Bluford Woman Held in Jefferson County Jail Receives New Meth-Related Charges

MT. VERNON (WRXX) – A 40-year-old Bluford woman who has been held in the Jefferson County Jail since her August arrest was charged Wednesday in Jefferson County Court with new offenses.

Rose McCormick was the primary suspect in August when four people were arrested during an operation by the Mt. Vernon Police Department/Jefferson County High Risk Team and Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System Tactical Team.

Officers served a warrant that day at a home in the 300 block of North Poplar in Bluford and arrested McCormick, on charges of Aggravated Delivery of between 15 and 100 grams of Methamphetamine 15 – 100 Grams, Aggravated Possession of a Controlled Substance (Fentanyl) with Intent to Deliver, Possession of Drug Equipment and Aggravated Delivery of Fentanyl.

She’s remained in the Jefferson County Jail since that time and was charged in a separate case Wednesday with two Class 2 felonies for delivery of less than 5 grams of meth. According to Jefferson County State’s Attorney Sean Featherstun, the charges predated the search warrant and arrest.

She currently has four outstanding felony cases in Jefferson County Court – three from 2022 and one from 2021.
