2 Rochelle residents arrested in Hub City drug bust (Updated)

An Ogle County judge set bond Friday for 2 Rochelle residents after they were arrested Thursday afternoon following a drug bust that took place at 221 Avenue "C".

24-year old David Mack along with 30-year old Diane Dirickson have been charged with the felony offense of unlawful possession of cannabis with the intent to deliver within 1,000 feet of a school, unlawful possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver, and unlawful possession of cannabis.

The arrest came about after police received word from local residents about possible drug dealings at 221 Avenue "C".

Police seized over 200 grams of marijuana at the home that was packaged to sell along with several digital scales and drug packaging material.

When police arrived at the scene, Mack ran from the home. Lincoln Grade School was put on lockdown for about 10 minutes until Mack was apprehended on a deck at 300 South Main Street. School was let out on time.

Also arrested at the scene was Mack's cousin, 22-year old Kristan Mack of Chicago, who was wanted on a Chicago Police Department warrant for aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

In court Friday, bond was set at $75,000 for David Mack and $10,000 for Dirickson. Both return before a judge next Friday for an arraignment.

They remain in the Ogle County jail in lieu of bond.

Thursday's arrest was made by Rochelle Police and their K-9 Unit along with Ogle County Sheriff's police and the Ogle County Emergency Response Team. The Rochelle Fire department also assisted at the scene.
