UI drug investigation leads to arrest

URBANA — A Champaign man is due back in court next month after being charged Monday with drug-related offenses.

Just before 8 p.m. Friday, Champaign police did a court-ordered search of the home of Adam M. Mailloux, 20, in the 1100 block of West Springfield Avenue.

A police press release said the search was the result of an ongoing investigation into illegal drug sales on the University of Illinois campus.

The release said police found over 250 grams of cannabis and suspected LSD, and psilocybin mushrooms.

Mailloux was charged Monday with possession with intent to deliver cannabis and possession of a controlled substance, Class 3 and 4 felonies respectively.

He was told to be back in court March 19.

Cannabis possesion should not be a crime.

To be fair, he does seem to be a dealer.
