ST. CHARLES – It took a Kane County jury 30 minutes Tuesday to convict a West Dundee man on a drug charge.

Timothy S. Newberry, 51, has a laundry list of prior offense. He was found guilty of one count of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance stemming from an arrest in May.

He could be sentenced to between two and 10 years in prison on the Class 3 felony. He will be sentenced Feb. 21.

According to a news release from the Kane County State's Attorney's Office, Newberry on May 28, arranged to sell four alprazolam pills for $45 to an undercover officer outside a business in the 200 block of West Main Street, Carpentersville.

At the time of the transaction, Newberry told the officer that he could obtain additional alprazolam pills for a future transaction.

Alprazolam is more commonly known as Xanex.

Newberry has 11 prior convictions dating to the early 1980s. Most are drug-related.

Newberry had been in custody at the Kane County jail since his arrest.
