Rochelle police have arrested a local man following a drug bust Friday morning at his business.
The arrest took place at the Clark Gas station at the intersection of Illinois 251 North and Carrie Avenue.
34-year old Aadi Patel has been arrested on the Class 2 felony offense of unlawful possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance. Police seized synthetic cannabinoid at the business. The drug is also know as K2, Spice, along with over the top and black mamba. The street value is believed to be over $10,000 that was confiscated yesterday.
Police also seized $5,000 in cash at the business.
Rochelle Police Chief Eric Higby said that they had received numerous complaints of drugs being sold from the gas station.
Patel was transported to the Ogle County jail without bond following the arrest.
The Clark Gas station was closed for a period of time yesterday morning when the search warrant was executed.
Assisting in the arrest was the Ogle County Sheriff's Department. Higby expects additional arrests in the case.
Patel is scheduled to appear before a judge this weekend in Oregon when bond will be set on the felony offense.
Synthetic Cannabinoids are often sold as plant food, herbal incense or even smoking blends.
