HARVARD – Two men face drug charges after police said they found cocaine, marijuana and guns at their homes during separate drug investigations.
Alexander F. Henson, 33, of Johnsburg and Richard J. Crabtree, 41, of Harvard have been charged in connection with the investigations.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Police Narcotics Task Force and the U.S. Marshals Service Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force served arrest warrants Friday to both men, according to a news release from the sheriff's office.
Court documents related to either case had not been filed with the McHenry County circuit clerk as of Friday evening.
In March, officers searched a home in the 1800 block of Grandview Drive, McHenry, after getting complaints about drug sales in the area, according to the release.
In the home, police found 5 grams of cocaine, a stun gun, a .32 caliber Iver Johnson revolver, a North American Arms Guardian .380 pistol and ammunition. The estimated street value of the drugs was about $500, according to the release.
Police believed Henson was connected with the home, and a warrant was issued for his arrest, the release stated.
Six months later, officers searched a home in the 1300 block of Seventh Street, Harvard, where they found 1.4 ounces of cocaine and 3 grams of marijuana, all worth about $4,000, according to the release. Police said they also found scales, packaging materials and a drug ledger.
Representatives from the sheriff's office were not available to provide details about the men's arrests or how they were connected with the homes where the drugs and weapons were found.
Henson was charged with delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a weapon by a felon and possession of a controlled substance.
The most serious charge against Henson, delivery of a controlled substance, typically is punishable by four to 15 years in prison. His bond was set at $150,000.
Crabtree was charged with delivery of a controlled substance near a park, delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
If Crabtree is convicted of delivery of a controlled substance near a park, he could face from six to 30 years in prison. His bond was set at $250,000.
Both men are due in court Saturday.
