Man on parole arrested in drug case
CHAMPAIGN — A Champaign man on parole for a drug conviction was arrested Tuesday for allegedly having cocaine intended for sale at his home.
Urbana police Sgt. Dan Morgan said Cory D. Jackson, 24, who listed an address in the 1500 block of Lincolnshire Drive, was arrested about 9 a.m. Tuesday by Urbana police, who were working with parole agents on compliance checks.
Morgan said police found about 1.5 grams of crack cocaine, $7,000 in cash, and three cell phones in Jackson's apartment. They arrested him for possession with intent to deliver cocaine, the same crime for which he was sentenced in 2006 to 10 years in prison.
Jackson was to appear in Champaign County Circuit Court Wednesday.
