A 20-year-old St. Charles man recently was arrested with what authorities say was more than $50,000 worth of marijuana, hallucinogenic mushrooms and other drugs.

Clark C. Weaver was arrested Oct. 25 and charged with four felonies after St. Charles police and agents of the North Central Narcotics Task Force executed a search warrant at his apartment in the 100 block of Walnut Drive, according to authorities and court records.

Authorities seized: 2,001.6 grams of marijuana; 505.1 grams of candies and gum laced with THC, the active ingredient in marijuana; 35 grams of THC oil; 30.1 grams of mushrooms; and .45 grams of cocaine.

If convicted of the most serious felony, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, Weaver could face up to 15 years in prison.

Authorities also seized drug paraphernalia, of which Weaver faces misdemeanor charges.

Police also said Edward E. Spitzer III, 20, of St. Charles, was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

St. Charles police spokesman Paul McCurtain deferred inquiries to the task force, which did not immediately return a message Wednesday.

Court records show that Weaver also was arrested Oct. 8 by Elgin police and charged with possession of less than 2.5 grams of marijuana.

Weaver is free on bond and due in court Thursday. Information about his defense attorney was not immediately available.
