Two Naperville men with previous criminal histories are facing drug-related charges after police accused them of possessing heroin and drug paraphernalia, according to DuPage County court records.

Michael A. Chacon, 24, of the 1200 block of Suffolk Street, and Stephen P. Storino, 23, of the 500 block of Warwick Drive, each are charged with a felony count of possession of a controlled substance and a misdemeanor count of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, court records show.

Chacon, formerly of Glendale Heights, was imprisoned earlier this year for killing his girlfriend's Chihuahua last July, apparently because it urinated on his shirt.

Storino has a previous felony conviction for unlawful possession of a controlled substance in 2010, according to court records, and also was charged with misdemeanor possession of cannabis in 2007 and 2008. Court records show Storino was given supervision in 2007 and not prosecuted in 2008.

Naperville police took the men into custody about 6:10 p.m. Monday and they appeared in DuPage County court Tuesday.

Records show Chacon is accused of having less than 30 grams of a substance containing heroin, while Storino is accused of having less than 15 grams of heroin. Both men are accused of knowingly possessing drug paraphernalia with the intent of ingesting drugs.

Chacon's bail was set at $50,000 and Storino's at $40,000, and it was not clear Saturday whether either man had posted bond to be released from jail. Chacon is due back in court Thursday, June 20, while Storino's next court date is Monday, June 17, according to records.

Police officials were unavailable to comment on the circumstances surrounding the arrest of the two men.
