WOODSTOCK – A Woodstock man with three previous drug convictions remained at the McHenry County Jail on Monday after police said he delivered cocaine near a local park.

Dewayne O. Williams, 29, of the 800 block of Washington Street, was charged with manufacturing and delivering cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school or park, manufacturing and delivering cocaine and possession of a controlled substance, charging documents show.

The most serious charge, manufacturing and delivering cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school or park, typically is punishable by six to 30 years in prison.

The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office issued a warrant for Williams’ arrest June 26. He was picked up Oct. 23 by the Dakota County Sheriff’s Office in Minnesota, and arrived at the McHenry County Jail on Friday, booking records show.

Williams is accused of delivering between 1 and 15 grams of cocaine in March within 1,000 feet of Mary Ann Street Park in Woodstock, according to a complaint filed in McHenry County court.

The exact amount of cocaine Williams is accused of delivering and its estimated street value were not immediately available.

Williams’ bond is set at $250,000, meaning he would need to post $25,000 bail to be released from jail.

McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney Taylor Nesbit filed a motion Saturday to be sure any potential money posted on Williams’ behalf was acquired legally.

Williams was convicted in 2015, 2011 and 2010 of drug-related charges, according to the petition.

Assistant Public Defender Grant Tucker did not have further details surrounding Williams’ most recent charges. Williams’ next court appearance is scheduled for Dec. 13.
