A Zion man, who is a convicted felon, was arrested after police found ‘significant amounts’ of heroin and cocaine and a gun in his home, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office said.
Robert Windom III, 37, of the 2900 block of Ezra Avenue in Zion, was charged with two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon and unlawful possession of cannabis.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Gang Task Force, Lake County Sheriff Tactical Response Team and Zion Police Department conducted a search warrant on Friday at Windom’s residence. During the search, they recovered 260 grams of heroin, over 180 grams of cocaine, over 220 grams of marijuana and a firearm.
Windom appeared for a bond hearing where his bond was set at $250,000. He has since been released after posting $25,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in court again on April 4.
“I couldn’t have made my warnings to drug pushers any clearer – if you think you can sell your deadly poisons in our community, you’re wrong. Our Gang Task Force is going to actively pursue drug pushers and they’re not going to stop – so, if you make the unwise decision to sell drugs, expect to be found and arrested,” Sheriff John Idleburg said.
