A McHenry man was sentenced to 20 years in prison after police found him in possession of more than a pound of cocaine and $24,000 in cash.
Ivan Olan, 58, of the 700 block of Colombus Street in McHenry, was charged with unlawful possession of cocaine with intent to deliver, unlawful possession of cocaine, unlawful possession of cannabis with intent to deliver and unlawful possession of cannabis.
Court documents show the Lake County Metropolitan Enforcement Group (LCMEG) conducted a search warrant at Olan’s residence on May 16, 2019.
Officers arrested Olan and 52-year-old Cynthia M. Morgan after finding drugs and cash in the home.
A criminal complaint said 489 grams of cocaine was located along with 443 grams of combined leaf cannabis and THC cartridges.
Officers seized $24,899 in cash, according to a motion filed by McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney Brette Dunbar.
At the time of his arrest, Olan was out on bond in a Lake County case where he had been charged with possessing cocaine and cannabis.
On Tuesday, McHenry County Judge Robert Wilbrandt approved a plea deal between Olan and the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
The deal involved the man pleading guilty to one count of possession of cocaine between 400-900 grams, a Class 1 felony. In exchange, prosecutors dismissed his other charges.
Wilbrandt sentenced Olan to 20 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
Morgan, also of the 700 block of Columbus Street in McHenry, was charged with the same charges as Olan, court records show.
She pleaded guilty to one count of possession of cannabis between 100-500 grams, a Class 4 felony.
Morgan was sentenced to two years of probation, 30 hours of public service, drug testing and $4,315 in court fines and fees.
If she successfully completes her probation, Morgan will be able to have the conviction removed from her record since she is a first-time drug offender, the Northwest Herald reported.
