3 arrested in DeKalb police drug bust

SYCAMORE – Police arrested two DeKalb women and a man after allegedly finding more than 15 types of controlled substances Friday in a University Village apartment.

Prescott V. Piatz, 23, of the 600 block of North Annie Glidden Road, is charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver within 1,000 feet of a school, unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, unlawful possession of marijuana, and unlawful possession of a controlled substance. The most serious charge, unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver within 1,000 feet of a school, is punishable by six to 30 years in prison.

Also arrested were Codie Miraglia and McKayla Harvey, both 21 and from the 600 block of North Annie Glidden Road. Both women are charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance. Miraglia also faces charges of unlawful possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both women were released Friday on their own recognizance.

Miraglia is due back in court June 21, and Harvey is scheduled to appear June 14.

According to court records, a police search of the women’s University Village apartment uncovered a veritable pharmacy of prescription drugs, narcotics and marijuana, including Xanax, cocaine, Oxycodone, MDMA and LSD, court records show.

DeKalb County Judge Philip Montgomery set Piatz’s bond at $150,000 Friday, meaning he must post $15,000 bail to be released from the DeKalb County Jail.

Police hope the arrests slow down drug crimes in the area to some extent, DeKalb police Sgt. Steve Lekkas said.

“I think [Piatz] was the one selling,” Lekkas said. “We ended up, hopefully, stopping some of the source of this. He was a significant street-level dealer by just the sheer volume of types and the amount of different drugs.”

Piatz is to appear in court Tuesday.
