A Hoffman Estates man is in custody after having been arrested in Elgin on charges of Fentanyl and meth trafficking.
On Sunday, October 28th, Kane County Sheriff’s Detectives and US Postal Inspectors conducted a traffic stop in the area of Dundee Ave and Seneca Ave in Elgin involving a Hoffman Estates man who took possession of a suspicious package during the investigation.
During the course of the stop, probable cause was gained and a search of the vehicle yielded two pounds of M-30 OxyContin pills and over one kilogram of AD-30 “Adderall” pills. It was discovered that these pills were manufactured on the black market and not by a legitimate pharmaceutical company. The M-30 pills actually contained Fentanyl and the AD-30 pills contained methamphetamine.
The 28 year-old man was arrested at the scene and charged with the following Class X felonies: Controlled Substance Trafficking, Methamphetamine Trafficking, Possession with the Intent to Deliver more than 900 grams of Fentanyl, Possession with the Intent to Deliver more than 900 grams of Methamphetamine, and Possession of more than 900 grams of Methamphetamine.
The man is currently in custody in Kane County jail awaiting Friday plea hearing.
