Police: Chicago man sold cocaine near Welsh Park

DeKALB — A Chicago man accused of selling less than 15 grams of cocaine near a DeKalb park could face between six and 30 years in prison if convicted.

Sheldon A. Maze, 27, of the 9100 block of South Urban Avenue, was charged with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of Welsh Park, unlawful delivery of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a controlled substance. Welsh Park is at 651 Russell Road.

He is accused of selling cocaine July 15 to a confidential police source, said DeKalb police detecitve Lt. Bob Redel. Police were able to recently arrest Maze, who was wanted for a couple of weeks, when he showed up to the DeKalb County Courthouse for a different criminal case, Redel said.

Maze's other pending criminal charges in DeKalb County include criminal trespass to a building, criminal trespass to land and multiple traffic offenses, court records show.

Maze's bond was set at $350,000. He is next due in court Aug. 14.
