SYCAMORE – Two DeKalb women are due in court today after being accused of having crack cocaine near an elementary school, according to court records.

Stephanie L. Bax, 19, and Jamie L. Spencer, 33, both of the 100 block of Oak Drive, could face between six and 30 years in prison if convicted of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver within 1,000 feet of a school.

Authorities from DeKalb, Northern Illinois University and the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office searched the women's home about 7:52 p.m. Friday and found two plastic bags containing crack cocaine within 1,000 feet of Littlejohn Elementary School, court records show. The cocaine weighed about 7.65 grams, court records show.

Police said they also searched Spencer's car and found about 0.45 grams of marijuana. Spencer told police that she intended to sell the crack cocaine, adding she has sold cocaine in the past and has profited from the sales, according to court records.

Bax admitted to helping Spencer sell cocaine, court records show.

Bax was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver within 1,000 feet of a school, unlawful delivery of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

Spencer was charged with the same offenses as well as unlawful possession of marijuana.

Both women remained in jail Monday unable to post 10 percent of their bond. Bax's bond is $100,000, and Spencer's bond is $250,000.
