A 30-year-old Carpentersville woman is charged with selling cocaine to an undercover officer in East Dundee, police said.

Cheryl L. Boyk, of the 6000 block of Hampton Drive, faces a minimum of six years in prison if convicted of manufacture/delivery of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school or park, according to police and Kane County court records.

Carpentersville police said Boyk was arrested at about 7:15 p.m. June 27 after she met an undercover officer at a gas station on the 400 block of East Main Street.

The sale took place within 1,000 feet of Immanuel Lutheran School, making the possible penalty more severe.

Carpentersville Police Cmdr. Erman Blevins said Boyk sold 5.1 grams of cocaine to the officer for $480 and was arrested.

"She made previous sales to the undercover officer," Belvins added.

Other transactions, according to police, occurred on June 19 and June 24. Those two sales were for 2 grams and 2.1 grams, respectively, according to police.

Book is due in court on Wednesday and is being held on $100,000 bail, meaning she must post $10,000 to be released while the charges are pending.

According to court records, Boyk was arrested in June 2005 on charges she sold alcohol to a minor. She was eventually found not guilty of that misdemeanor charge.

She was arrested in April in Carpentersville and charged with resisting arrest. Boyk later pleaded guilty and was issued conditional discharge, a form of probation. records show.
