UI police arrest two on drug charges
CHAMPAIGN — Two fraternity brothers were criminally charged Tuesday in Champaign County Circuit Court with drug offenses after their arrests by University of Illinois police Monday night.
UI police Sgt. Tom Geis said officers from his department's narcotics and street crimes units had collected enough information to obtain a search warrant for the apartment of Dalton Lukasik, 19, and Robert T. White, 20, at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity, 911 S. Fourth St., C.
Police served it Monday night and in their room found more than a half-pound of cannabis (250 grams), 4.5 grams of suspected psilocybin, a scale and other packaging materials.
They also found about $2,500, which included cash for which police had recorded serial numbers before using it in previous drug purchases from the men.
Geis said the cannabis and the cash were found in a safe for which Lukasik said only he and White had the combination.
Both men are UI students. They were charged with possession with intent to deliver cannabis and possession of a controlled substance.
Both were told to be back in court May 7.
