A 23-year-old Carpentersville man is being held on $50,000 bail after his weekend arrest on allegations he possessed 15 doses of LSD, a felony that carries a minimum six-year prison term.
Evan C. Williams, of the 200 block of Harrison Street, also was charged with another felony after refusing to give officers the password to his phone even though they had a search warrant for it, police said.
Carpentersville police Cmdr. Timothy Bosshart said an undercover operation led authorities to obtain a search warrant for Williams and his phone. Officers spotted Williams driving at 1:53 a.m. Sunday in the 100 block of South Western Avenue (Route 31) and pulled him over, Bosshart said.
Authorities found 15 paper squares on Williams that tested positive as the hallucinogenic drug LSD, along with a $100 bill with cocaine residue on it, Bosshart said.
"LSD used to be the big thing years ago. You don't see a lot of it now," Bosshart said.
Williams is charged with possession of 15 to 200 doses of LSD, a felony that carries a prison term of six to 30 years with no possibility of probation. He also is charged with possession of a controlled substance and obstructing justice, both felonies.
"(Williams) refused to provide a password to his phone," Bosshart said. "They took the phone but it will require some work to get into."
Williams does not have any previous felony arrests in Kane County. He was cited by Elgin police in January 2008 for possession of alcohol by a minor and fined $150. He also was fined $150 by Elgin police for a February 2008 retail theft arrest, according to Kane County court records.
He is due in court Thursday.
