Undercover operation nets three cannabis arrests

Two Harvard men charged

Two Harvard men and a Delavan, Wis., man were arrested in connection with a month-long undercover investigation, the McHenry County Sheriff's Office announced in a news release Thursday.

Matthew J. Roberts, 26, of the 700 block of Dewey St. in Harvard, Jasper D. Hanson, 27, of the 600 block of Hart St. in Harvard, and David R. Beall, 29, of Delvan, Wis., were each charged with unlawful delivery of cannabis and unlawful possession of cannabis.

The county sheriff's office narcotics task force, which includes members of the Lake in the Hills Police Department, and Harvard Police conducted a month-long undercover investigation leading to the arrests. The investigation revealed that drugs were being transported across state lines into McHenry County from Wisconsin, according to the release.

At the conclusion of the investigation, detectives seized more than 250 grams of cannabis and $525.

Hanson and Beall each posted $2,500 bond, while Roberts remains in custody with a $25,000 bail. Roberts is next due in court at 9 a.m. March 13, Hanson at 9 a.m. March 21 and Beall at 9 a.m. March 28.
