Man arrested after suspected drugs found in his home

CHAMPAIGN — University of Illinois police arrested a Champaign man over the weekend after they found suspected drugs and other paraphernalia in his home.

Bartek A. Urbanek, 21, who listed an address in the 300 block of East Green Street, was charged on Monday with unlawful possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

Judge Richard Klaus scheduled Urbanek's next court appearance for Tuesday.

According to a UI police report, a narcotics investigation led police to get a search warrant for Urbanek's home.

Police arrested Urbanek at 9 p.m. Sunday after finding about 15 grams of suspected K2 "Spice," which is a synthetic cannabis product; several items with suspected cocaine residue on them; some prescription pills; drug equipment; packaging bags and cash.
