Waterloo man facing federal weapons charges

James Cody Voss

A 24-year-old Waterloo man was indicted Wednesday by a federal grand jury on multiple charges stemming from a January 2016 incident involving shots fired in the 7000 block of Fountain Creek Ridge Lane.

While executing a search warrant Thursday morning in the 5600 block of State Route 156 near Goeddeltown Road east of Waterloo on an unrelated case, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department, Metropolitan Enforcement Group of Southwestern Illinois and Illinois State Police took James Cody Voss, 24, of Waterloo, into custody on federal charges of unlawful possession of a sawed-off shotgun, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, and unlawful possession of ammunition by a felon.

In 2011, Voss was sentenced to three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for burglary.

Two other individuals, Matthew Hurley and Erin Matzenbacher of Waterloo, were taken into custody during execution of the search warrant, Monroe County Sheriff Neal Rohlfing said. They were arraigned Friday in Monroe County Circuit Court on felony methamphetamine charges. For more on that story, click here.
