ST. CHARLES – A 22-year-old man trying to join the Second Chance Pre-trial Diversion Program through the Kane County State's Attorney's Office was charged with a felony Friday evening after defrauding a drug test, St. Charles Police Department spokesperson Paul McCurtain said.

Dedrick Glover-Pool reportedly brought a condom filled with a friend's urine to a drug testing facility in the 300 block of North Randall Road in St. Charles in an attempt to pass it off as his own.

An employee for the drug testing company became suspicious when Glover-Pool appeared to be having problems providing a sample, McCurtain said. He said the employee also noticed the urine was cold when it should have been at body temperature.

The employee asked Glover-Pool about it, and Glover-Pool admitted the urine wasn't his, McCurtain said.

St. Charles police responded to the building at about 6:30 p.m. and took Glover-Pool into custody, McCurtain said, noting they also seized the sample as evidence.

Glover-Pool, of the 1400 block of Golden Oaks Parkway, Aurora, was charged with defrauding a drug test, a Class 4 felony, McCurtain said.

According to the Kane County sheriff's online records, Glover-Pool remained in custody Monday afternoon on $5,000 bail. He is next expected in court June 19.

McCurtain didn't know what charge prompted Glover-Pool to apply for the diversion program. The state's attorney's diversion programs give certain individuals a second chance to keep their record clear of a criminal conviction.
