Magana-Corza, 21, of the 1900 block of North Orleans Place, was pulled over by police after throwing a plastic pop bottle out of his car while driving in Round Lake Park at about 8 p.m. on Oct. 1, authorities said.

A search of car by the Round Lake Park police turned up more than 112 grams of cocaine, 13 grams of crystal meth and a loaded .38-caliber revolver, authorities said.

Following the traffic stop, police obtained a search warrant for Magana-Corza's McHenry house, where an additional 43 grams of cocaine, 13 grams of crystal meth, 56 grams of marijuana, and three more guns were seized, authorities said.

The street value of the drugs seized was about $30,000, authorities said.

Police said they also confiscated a vehicle that was obtained with the proceeds from drug sales.

Magana-Corza remains held in Lake County jail in lieu of $250,000 bail. He is due back in court on Dec. 11.
