Rantoul bicyclist arrested for suspected drugs
RANTOUL — Police arrested a Rantoul bicyclist early Wednesday morning after they found suspected drugs in his pocket.
Nicholas Massie, 50, who listed an address in Rantoul, pleaded innocent on Wednesday to delivery of methamphetamine.
According to Rantoul Sgt. Marcus Beach, police received information that Massie, who is on parole for aggravated driving under the influence and driving with a revoked or suspended license, may have been in possession of a controlled substance.
A police officer saw Massie riding his bicycle in Rantoul at about 1 a.m. Wednesday and pulled him over. When police searched Massie, they found a little over 0.07 ounces (2 grams) of suspected methamphetamine in his pocket, arrested him and took him to the Champaign County Jail.
Judge Richard Klaus set Massie's next court appearance for July 10.
