ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – A Campton Hills man who was stopped for an alleged traffic violation was charged with a dozen drug-related felonies after police found illegal narcotics in his car, according to a news release from Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon.

Troy P. Collins, 26, of the 40W100 block of James Michener Drive, Campton Hills, is currently being held in the Kane County jail on $125,000 bond. He would need to post 10 percent or $12,500 as bail.

Collins was charged, Oct. 16 with multiple counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver; unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver; six counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance; and misdemeanor driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content greater than 0.08% according to the release and court records.

Kane County prosecutors allege that about 2 a.m. on Oct. 16, Elburn police stopped the car Collins was driving on Route 38 in Elburn for exceeding the posted speed limit.

They charged him with driving under the influence when his blood-alcohol concentration registered at .170%, more than double the limit of 0.08%, which is considered legally drunk.

While searching the vehicle, police allegedly found more than 8 grams of ecstasy, more than 16 grams of ketamine, more than 2 grams of cocaine, more than 16 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, less than 1 gram of LSD, and 84 2-miligram Xanax pills, the release stated.

Elburn police also allegedly found in Collins' vehicle a digital scale containing cocaine residue, approximately 200 plastic bags of varying sizes and other items consistent with drug use and drug dealing, the release stated.

The most serious charges against Collins, three Class 1 felonies, are punishable by four to 15 years in prison and fines up to $25,000 if convicted.

Collins' next court appearance is set for Oct. 24.
