Man charged with drug possession in Urbana while out on bond

Posted on Wednesday, June 6th, 2012 at 2:53 pm    

On May 5, a 38-year-old Urbana man was arrested after he was found in a vehicle with a substantial amount of heroin and cash on him. He was taken to jail and released on bond. He arrived in court for that charge last Tuesday, and his hearing was extended to July 24.

The man was still on bond last Thursday, two days after his court appearance for the initial charge, when he was arrested again. He was a passenger in a motor vehicle that was stopped by police around 3 p.m. in Champaign. A drug detection dog indicated to police that there were drugs in the vehicle.

Police discovered that the man had crack cocaine and heroin on his body. He was charged with intent to deliver narcotics and drug possession. He now faces charges for the two separate drug-related incidents, and if  he is convicted of both counts, he will have to serve the terms back-to-back.
