A 23-year-old Aurora man faces several felony charges after authorities discovered a cache of eight guns, $111,000 worth of heroin and other drugs and even a bag of loose diamonds during a parole compliance check this week.

Terrell A. Alvarez faces 13 felony charges, including five counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and eight counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, according to Kane County court records.

He was arrested Wednesday after police and officials from the Illinois Department of Corrections went to his residence on the 1300 block of Solfisburg Avenue for a parole check, saw guns and drugs in plain view and later returned with a search warrant, police said.

Aurora police said they seized eight firearms -- an AR-15 machine gun and seven handguns, two of which were stolen.

Authorities also seized nearly 785 grams of cocaine, nearly 235 grams of heroin, 339 grams of marijuana, 190 Ecstasy pills, 79 Xanax pills and six boxes of THC cartridges for vaping, and $6,000.

Authorities said they also found a drug press, money counter, vacuum sealer, cutting agents for drugs, a jammer that detects recording devices and blocks cell signals, various jewelry and gold coins and a bag of 36 loose diamonds.

Alvarez was on parole after serving half of a 4-year prison term for a cocaine possession offense from January 2016, records show. He also has a conviction for felony mob action from 2015, records show.

He is held at the Kane County jail and his bail amount was not immediately available.

Alvarez is next due in court Nov. 15. If convicted of the most severe charges, he faces up to 30 years in prison.
