SYCAMORE – A DeKalb woman who police said admitted her plans to sell the ecstasy pills they found in her apartment was released from jail Thursday on her signature.

Makyiah J. Wilkerson, 19, of the 800 block of Pappas Drive, DeKalb, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, unlawful possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana. If convicted of the most serious charge, possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, she could face six to 30 years in prison.

DeKalb police searched Wilkerson’s home at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to DeKalb County court records. They found 15 tablets of ecstasy and about an ounce of marijuana. According to court documents, Wilkerson said the drugs were hers and that she intended to sell the pills.

Judge Phillip Montgomery appointed a public defender to represent Wilkerson. She was released on her signature with the condition of pretrial supervision.

She is next due in court Aug. 2.
