Court-ordered search leads to drug charges
URBANA — A Champaign man has been charged with two Class X felony drug counts after police found suspected Ecstasy and cocaine in his apartment.
A University of Illinois police report said James F. Hall, 25, who listed an address in the 100 block of East John Street, was arrested late Thursday night after a court-authorized search by UI police of his apartment turned up about 25 bags of powder cocaine and 25 Ecstasy capsules.
They also found $5,190 cash, which included pre-marked money that police had given to confidential sources in the past with which to buy drugs, the report said.
The charges, unlawful possession with intent to deliver Ecstasy and unlawful possession with intent to deliver cocaine, are Class X felonies because Hall's apartment is within 1,000 feet of Washington Park.
If convicted of the charges, Hall faces six to 30 years in prison.
Judge John Kennedy set his bond at $50,000 and ordered him to be back in court Dec. 10.
