LAPORTE | LaPorte authorities are alleging a city man made and sold methamphetamine.

Mathew Rancatore, 23, of 111 Scott St., is charged in LaPorte Circuit Court with felony dealing methamphetamine.

According to court documents, Rancatore was arrested Aug. 15 after police learned he had purchased pseudoephedrine — a main ingredient in the manufacture of methamphetamine — at a local pharmacy.

According to police, Rancatore was followed to a house on Worden Street where he was seen pouring camping fuel, another key ingredient in the cooking of methamphetamine, into a clear bottle.

Police went inside the home and confiscated other ingredients such as lithium batteries and lye drain cleaner.

Rancatore could face anywhere from a six to 20-year sentence on the most serious charge.
