Felony drug charges: Three area men have been arrested on felony and misdemeanor drug charges, Bartlett police said. Arrested Sunday evening were Evan A. Nelsen, 21, of the 33W200 block of Shagbark Lane, Wayne, on charges of possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia; John Phillip Pounds, 20, of the 1300 block of Normandy Lane, Bartlett, on charges of possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia; and Shawn R. Williams, 22, of the 400 block of Timber Ridge Drive, Bartlett, on charges of delivery of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police said they were called to the 900 block of Doral Lane on a report of a suspicious van parked in the neighborhood. Officers located the three suspects inside the vehicle parked near Ford and Lela lanes. Several small bags of suspected heroin were found inside and outside of the van along with a small amount of cannabis and drug paraphernalia, police said.

57 charged with underage drinking: Police said they cited 57 young people with underage drinking early Saturday at party in the village. Officers were called to the 600 block of Philip Drive to investigate a report of a underage drinking party. Armando Montiel, 21, of that address, was hosting the party while his parents were out of town and was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, police said. The 57 persons charged with unlawful consumption of liquor ranged in age from 16 to 20, reports stated.


House fire: A fire caused about $20,000 damage Monday night to a garage and home at 411 E. Schaumburg Road. Firefighters said they were called there at 10:44 p.m. and found a large detached garage fully involved in fire. Firefighters quickly contained the fire before it could spread to the adjacent home. The fire destroyed the garage and radiant heat damaged siding on the house. The house appeared to be under renovation and was not occupied at the time of the fire. The cause of the fire was not readily apparent, and an investigation was ongoing, firefighters said.
