A Chicago man was sentenced to seven years in prison following a bust where officers found large quantities of drugs, including fentanyl, being sold out of motels in Woodstock.
Matt Jones, 45, of Lakemoor, and David Stodolny, 52, of Chicago, were both charged in March with manufacture or delivery of 15-100 grams of cocaine, manufacture or delivery of 15-100 grams of fentanyl, manufacture or delivery of over 200 grams of a schedule 1 or 2 drug, manufacture or delivery of over 5,000 grams of cannabis, possession of 15-100 grams of cocaine, possession of 15-100 grams of heroin, possession of over 200 grams of a schedule 1 or 2 drug and possession of over 5,000 grams of cannabis.
Stodolny was additionally charged with endangering the health or life of a child.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Task Force executed a search warrant on March 14 at a room in the Super 8 motel in Woodstock, located at 1220 Davis Road, court documents show.
Stodolny, Jones and Jones’ child were in the room.
As officers made entry, around $3,200 in cash was thrown out of the window of the motel room.
Officers found a cocaine prep station inside the room along with multiple baggies, rubber bands, a scale and cocaine residue, court documents said.
Stotolny had around 45 grams of cocaine and fentanyl in multiple baggies.
Further investigation led police to obtain a search warrant for another motel room at the Quality Inn & Suites, located at 1785 South Eastwood Drive in Woodstock.
That room was obtained by Stodolny and Jones, court documents said.
Over 5,000 grams of various cannabis items were recovered from both rooms.
Officers also found over 200 grams of psilocybin mushrooms in the Quality Inn room.
A juvenile was also charged in connection with the bust. Prosecutors said the three were working together selling the drugs out of the motel rooms.
McHenry County Judge Mark Gerhardt set both men’s bonds at $250,000.
Court records show Stodolny entered into a negotiated plea deal with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office on Tuesday.
He pleaded guilty to one count of manufacturing or delivering 15-100 grams of fentanyl, a Class X felony, in exchange for the rest of his charges being dismissed.
McHenry County Judge James Cowlin approved the plea and sentenced Stodolny to seven years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
The sentence will be served at 50% and Stodolny will receive credit for 45 days in the county jail.
The case against Jones remains active. He has pleaded not guilty.
