A Quincy man was arrested Monday after allegedly violating the Illinois Methamphetamine Control Act for a second time.

Kenneth M. Silman, 31, was arrested by agents with the West Central Illinois Task Force in the 3500 block of Wisman Lane. He is accused of making psuedoephedrine purchases after he was convicted under the Methamphetamine Control Act of 2005.

According to Adams County circuit clerk records, Silman was charged in 2002 and 2004 with unlawful possession of meth. He received 30 months of probation in each case. In 2009, Silman was charged with unlawful possession of meth precursors and received a five-year sentence in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

Silman made his first court appearance Tuesday. He posted 10 percent of a $10,000 bond. His next court appearance is March 15.
