A Schaumburg man, whose arrest earlier this year on an outstanding warrant led to new charges of manufacture and delivery of cocaine, pleaded guilty to those charges in Rolling Meadows.

A Cook County judge Wednesday sentenced 29-year-old Kevin Vergara to 30 months probation and 180 days in Cook County Jail. Vergara received credit for the 97 days he has spent in custody since his arrest.

The judge also ordered Vergara to submit to a drug evaluation and follow any recommendations and to pay $2,750 in fines.

Schaumburg police arrested Vergara in April outside his home in the 1300 block of Algonquin Road. A search revealed a substance in Vergara's left sock that tested positive for cocaine, prosecutors said.
