Officers arrested 29-year-old Dure A. Shellie. He was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and possession of cannabis.

Shellie was released from prison on parole in June of this year on a conviction for possessing a controlled substance with intent to deliver, according to Illinois Department of Corrections records.

Shellie was serving a six-year sentence and had been taken into custody on the original charge in June 2009.

Waukegan Police Chief Daniel Greathouse said his department is continuing its pursuit of drug dealers and is encouraging residents to call police if they suspect there is a drug dealer in their neighborhood.
