A Schaumburg parolee was ordered held on $250,000 bail Tuesday after authorities arrested him on various drug charges.

Jermaine Cooper, 32, who prosecutors say was on parole following a 2006 conviction for the manufacture and delivery of drugs near a school, was charged with possession of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a park. He was also charged with intent to deliver, prosecutors said.

On March 26, a witness called police about a suspicious man who appeared to be wedging a plastic bag next to a dumpster in the vicinity of the Poplar Creek Forest Preserve in Hoffman Estates, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Kathryn Roy.

The man had left by the time police arrived, Roy said. But they recovered 106 small bags containing various drugs including heroin, cocaine and other controlled substances, Roy said.

Police -- who were investigating Cooper on another matter -- showed the witness a photo lineup with Cooper's picture, Roy said. The witness identified Cooper as the man near the dumpster, Roy said. On Sunday, police stopped Cooper and recovered from the car 76 grams of cocaine, 19 grams of heroin and 52 grams of cannabis, along with drug paraphernalia and $941 in cash, Roy said.

Cooper, who is also currently on bond for misdemeanor criminal trespass, next appears in court on April 25.
