A Harvard woman was arrested after a sheriff’s office task force found nearly $60,000 of cocaine stashed in two locations in McHenry County.
Johanna L. Gregg, 49, of the 0-100 block of North Ayer Street in Harvard, was charged with one count of possession of 400-900 grams of cocaine with intent to deliver, a Class X felony.
A motion filed in McHenry County Circuit Court said that the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Task Force received information from a confidential informant.
The informant reported that Gregg was selling a large amount of cocaine out of her residence in Harvard, the motion said.
