North Aurora woman charged with drug possession

SYCAMORE – A North Aurora woman faces time in prison after the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office said it found drugs and drug paraphernalia in her car.

Amber Rae Moberly, 31, of the 700 block of Doral Lane, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, unlawful possession of hypodermic syringes, obstructing identification, driving with a suspended license, disobeying a stop sign and improper lane usage after a traffic 5:45 a.m. Tuesday at Market and East streets in Somonauk, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

If convicted of the most serious charge, unlawful possession of a controlled substance, Moberly could be sentenced to up to three years in prison.

Police initially responded to a driving complaint early Tuesday morning. When deputies stopped the vehicle, police said Moberly jumped into the backseat of the car. According to the news release, Moberly then gave police several false names and birth dates.

After searching the vehicle, police said they found two crack pipes, a marijuana pipe, a spoon with heroin residue, seven hypodermic syringes, 15 pink capsules that tested positive for cocaine, heroin and fentanyl, according to court documents.

During Moberly’s bond hearing Wednesday, Judge Robbin Stuckert released Moberly on her signature, under the condition that she be under pretrial supervision.
