Man out on bond in drug case arrested again

Man out on bond in drug case arrested again

UPDATED 4:45 p.m. Friday

URBANA — A California man who was released from jail for alleged cannabis trafficking on Wednesday was arrested again Thursday night along with another man for having even more cannabis.

Champaign County sheriff's Lt. Ed Ogle said officers from the department's street crimes unit had been investigating Cary Kallembach, 47, who listed an address in Oroville, Calif., and was formerly from Urbana, for several weeks for allegedly selling marijuana to local people.

On Monday, they arrested him in Champaign for cannabis trafficking after he came to a man's house allegedly to collect drug debts from the person he was supplying.

He was charged Tuesday with cannabis trafficking for allegedly supplying about 11 pounds of cannabis to the Champaign man in November. And on Wednesday, Kallembach posted $10,000 to be released from jail. He's due back in court on that case Jan. 29.

Ogle said on Thursday afternoon, when deputies conducted a court-ordered search at the home of Steven D. Fogle, 40, in the 1400 block of Lincolnwood Drive in Urbana, as part of the same investigation, Kallembach was there.

Ogle said deputies found 4.1 pounds of suspected cannabis and more than $700 in cash in Fogle's home.

Both Kallembach and Fogle were arrested for possession with intent to deliver more than 30 grams of cannabis. They were expected to be formally charged Friday afternoon.

Kallembach pleaded innocent to one county of unlawful calculated criminal cannabis conspiracy and one county of unlawful possession with the intent to deliver cannabis.

Judge Richard Klaus set Kallembach’s bond at $1 million and scheduled his next court appearance for March 5.

Kallembach faces 12 to 60 years in prison if convicted of the previous trafficking charge.

Fogle asked for more time to hire an attorney after he was charged with unlawful possession with the intent to deliver cannabis.

Klaus set Fogle’s bond at $5,000 and scheduled his next court appearance for Jan. 18.
