A Lakewood man was arrested after police conducted a search warrant and found approximately 118 pounds of cannabis products, $60,000 in cash and a gun.
Carl D. Ciampanelli, 26, of the 9000 block of Montrose Court in Lakewood, was charged with possession with intent to deliver more than 5,000 grams of cannabis, a Class X felony, and possession of more than 5,000 grams of cannabis, a Class 1 felony.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant on Friday at Ciampanelli’s residence, according to a motion filed by McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney Ken Hudson.
They also recovered a Springfield XDS .45 caliber handgun and more than $60,000 in cash, Hudson said in court documents.
Prosecutors asked the court to verify the source of bond funds, should Ciampanelli be able to post bail.
A McHenry County judge set Ciampanelli’s bond at $150,000 bond. He remains held in the McHenry County jail and would need to post $15,000 cash to be released.
Ciampanelli is scheduled to appear in court again on Tuesday to set a date for a preliminary hearing.
