WOODSTOCK – A West Dundee teen accused of selling LSD and marijuana faces a series of drug charges.

Jacob A. Fosco, 18, was charged Wednesday with possession with intent to deliver LSD, a Class X felony; unlawful possession of LSD, a Class 1 felony; possession with intent to deliver cannabis, a Class 4 felony; and unlawful possession of cannabis as well as unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, Class A misdemeanors.

If convicted of a Class X felony, he could face six to 30 years in prison.

Members of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office seized 19 tabs of LSD, 17 grams of marijuana, a digital scale and plastic baggies from Fosco, according to court documents. The street value of the drugs is estimated at $450, deputies said.

Fosco previously was arrested in September and charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance. Police said he had eight 1-milligram clonazepam tablets. Clonazepam is used to treat anxiety, seizures and panic disorder.

He will appear in court on the new charges Tuesday before McHenry County Judge Michael Feetterer.
