ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – A 21-year-old St. Charles man was sentenced this month to 30 months of probation after he pleaded guilty to possession of marijuana, according to Kane County court records.

Clark C. Weaver was charged with that felony and others last year when authorities from the North Central Narcotics Task Force and the St. Charles Police Department seized about $50,000 in marijuana and other controlled substances, authorities have said.

Authorities reportedly collected 2,002 grams of marijuana, 505 grams of THC-laced candies and gum, 35 grams of THC oil, 30 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, 0.45 grams of cocaine and miscellaneous drug paraphernalia from an apartment in the 100 block of Walnut Drive in St. Charles.

On July 10, Weaver pleaded guilty to felony possession of 2,000 to 5,000 grams of marijuana as part of a plea agreement accepted by Judge Clint T. Hull, according to court records.

In exchange, court records show, his other charges – felony possession with intent to deliver, two counts of felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia – were dropped.

Weaver was sentenced to 30 months of probation and fines and costs totaling $8,335, according to court records.
