Lake in the Hills man charged with growing marijuana

LAKE IN THE HILLS – A Lake in the Hills man was charged Monday with growing roughly $1,700 worth of marijuana at his apartment.

Roberto J. Perez, 32, of 1 W. Acorn Lane in Lake in the Hills, faces a Class 4 felony for unlawful production of cannabis sativa plants after narcotics officers seized 17 marijuana plants at the apartment Monday, according to a McHenry County sheriff's news release.

A Class 4 felony is punishable by up to three years in prison.

Members of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Police Narcotics Task Force and officers from the Lake in the Hills Police Department also found packaging material, drug paraphernalia and a digital drug scale during the search.

The additional items led to a Class A misdemeanor charge along with two active warrants for Perez. Perez is scheduled to appear in McHenry County court at 8 a.m. Tuesday.
