Four men, including a 72-year-old and a 66-year-old, are facing narcotics charges after Chicago police raided a North Side home that allegedly received a U.S. mail package containing over $66,000 worth of methamphetamine, according to court records.
A police postal narcotics unit armed with a search warrant raided the home of a 66-year-old man in the 6200 block of North Artesian around 2:30 p.m. on December 21.
Prosecutors have charged him and three others who were allegedly inside the home with a variety of meth-related felonies.
Nerray Canoy, a 21-year-old waiter from West Ridge, is charged with Class X felony possession of 100 to 400 grams of methamphetamine. Accused of being in possession of 192 grams of meth worth $63,360, he’s free on electronic monitoring and a $50,000 I-Bond.
A 43-year-old janitor from the Irving Park neighborhood is charged with one felony count of fewer than five grams of meth. He’s free on a $10,000 I-Bond.
Police said they recovered a digital scale, a knife covered with suspected drug residue, U.S. Postal Service packaging, and zip-up baggies containing drug residue during the raid.
All of the men are due back in court on January 9.
