A McHenry man was free on bond when he showed up to court Friday, but security officers escorted him from the room in handcuffs after a probation officer read aloud the 21-year-old’s drug test results.
Jacob Reis, who is accused of delivering Xanax to a woman who later overdosed, was ordered to return to the McHenry County Jail after testing positive for Xanax, heroin and marijuana Friday morning.
Reis, 22, and another woman, 19-year-old Reanna Salas, each are charged with delivering Xanax to 19-year-old Rachel Ramirez on May 13. Reis found Ramirez unconscious May 14, according to a Cary Police Department report. A blood test showed the presence of Xanax, marijuana, fentanyl and opioids in her system when she died, the report showed.
Neither Salas nor Reis face drug-induced homicide charges in connection with Ramirez’s death. The McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office continues to investigate the incident.
Reis will remain at the McHenry County Jail without bond until a hearing scheduled for Tuesday, Judge James Cowlin ordered.
Reis, 21 years old at the time, had been dating Ramirez for about a week when he used her money to buy Xanax from Salas, according to the police report. A petition filed by the state’s attorney’s office cites messages between Salas and Reis, in which they allegedly arranged a drug deal.
Ramirez wasn’t the only person to overdose that night, but she was the only one who died.
Another man, who had spent the afternoon in a different room of the Cary home where Ramirez died, was taken to the hospital after overdosing on Xanax, according to the police report. He later signed himself out and returned to the home.
