Peru man caught in drug sting

NT Staff

A Peru man faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted of delivering 20 ecstasy pills seized in a sting operation Thursday at a Utica travel plaza.

Adam J. Schaub, 22, of 2121 10th St., Peru was charged Thursday with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance (ecstasy), a Class X felony carrying 6-30 years in prison with no possibility of probation.

Schaub was charged following an operation by the Tri-County Drug Enforcement Narcotics Team (TRI-DENT), during which Schaub allegedly sold pills to an undercover agent in the parking lot at Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores, located on Route 178 at Utica’s north end, TRI-DENT said.

Schaub also was found to be in possession of five additional pills plus a misdemeanor quantity of cannabis, police said.

Bond was set at $1 million. Schaub needs to post $100,000 in cash to be released from La Salle County Jail. Schaub told Chief Judge H. Chris Ryan Jr. he would attempt to hire private counsel.

He will next appear before Judge Cynthia M. Raccuglia on Jan. 17 for possible arraignment.
