• Thadeus Julian K. Cortez, 21, of the 500 block of Crystal Avenue in South Elgin, faced several drug charges Friday. Police say he intended to sell between 10 and 30 grams of marijuana. Cortez was charged with manufacture/delivery of marijuana, possession of marijuana and resisting or obstructing a police officer -- reports said Cortez initially ran away from police. His bail was set Friday at $40,000, which means he needs to post 10 percent to get out of jail while his case is pending. He is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 9 at the Kane County Judicial Center.
