Police find cocaine, marijuana in Sycamore homes

SYCAMORE – A 34-year-old Sycamore man remained in the DeKalb County Jail on Thursday after police found 11 grams of cocaine and about a half-ounce of marijuana in his home, authorities said.

Victor M. DeLuna, of the 200 block of Lucas Street, faces several drug charges after Sycamore, DeKalb and DeKalb County sheriff’s police searched his home near a church about 5:30 a.m. Wednesday, DeKalb County Chief Deputy Gary Dumdie said. If convicted of the most serious charge he faces, unlawful possession of cocaine with intent to deliver within 1,000 feet of a church, DeLuna could be sentenced to between six and 30 years in prison.

Police obtained the search warrant after receiving information that DeLuna could be selling drugs, Dumdie said.

After police went inside DeLuna’s home, they realized he wasn’t there, but found him at Amanda Craft’s home in the 800 block of DeKalb Avenue in Sycamore, Dumdie said. Police searched her home and found smaller amounts of cocaine and marijuana, Dumdie said.

Craft, 31, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana. If convicted of the most serious charge, she could be sentenced to probation or up to three years in prison.

DeLuna’s bond was set at $100,000, while Craft’s was set at $5,000. DeLuna is next due in court Feb. 6, while Craft’s next court date is Feb. 18.
