Two people were arrested by Elgin police and charged with possession of more than 15 grams of Ecstasy Tuesday night after they tried to sell drugs to an undercover cop.

Jacob M. Laurance, 20, of the 1000 block of Glenbriar Court, St. Charles, Alexandra R. Wojcik, 18, of the 0-99 block of Saratoga Court, South Elgin, both face charges of possession of more than 15 grams of Ecstasy with intent to deliver within 1,000 feet of a school, in this case Coleman Elementary on Dundee Avenue, according to Kane County court records.

They also face four other felonies and if convicted of the most severe charge, face between six and 30 years in prison without the possibility of probation.

According to an Elgin police report, the couple were arrested after Laurance agreed to sell $100 worth of Ecstasy on the 1200 block of Dundee Avenue.

Laurance got out of Wojcik's vehicle and into the car of an undercover officer. After the officer bought one, $100 capsule, both Laurance and Wojcik were arrested, the report said.

Officers searched Wojcik's car and fond 16 grams of MDMA, or Ecstasy, a digital scale, numerous plastic bags and empty capsules, the report said.

Wojcik admitted to police she drives her boyfriend, Laurance, to drug deals and the two were saving money to move to Florida, the report said.

Laurance also confessed to police that he and Wojcik sell MDMA for a living, they have about 10 to 15 regular customers and neither of them are employed, the report said.

"(Laurance) admitted that he was going to deliver the other five capsules of MDMA found in his possession to the (undercover officer) only if the (undercover officer) ingested the first capsule he initially delivered proving the (undercover officer) wasn't a police officer," the report said.

Wojcik does not have any previous adult arrests; Laurance has previous arrests for felony possession of two Xanax pills in May 2013 in West Dundee and for misdemeanor retail theft of $236 worth of liquor in January 2013 in Elgin, according to court records.

Laurance was being held on $101,500 bail and Wojcik's bail was $35,000, according the sheriff's office.

Both are due in court July 9.
