CARY – A Cary man was found guilty of a drug-related felony after a 2016 crash that led to the discovery of cocaine.

Matthew D. Armbrust of Cary was found guilty of possession of a controlled substance after a bench trial before Judge James Cowlin, according to a news release from the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
