Search for missing Harvard teen nets drug arrest

HARVARD – A teen previously reported missing now faces drug-related charges after a search of his bedroom netted drugs and drug paraphernalia, according to the Harvard Police Department.

The 15-year-old boy was arrested April 17 in connection with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a dangerous weapon.

He also was issued a warning for gang conduct.

Police searched the boy’s room after he was reported missing April 17, and they found drug paraphernalia, brass knuckles and what investigators believe to be cocaine, according to a news release.

When he was located the same day at a different home in Harvard, marijuana also was found.

He was detained in the Kane County Juvenile Detention Center pending a detention hearing.
