ST. CHARLES – Two men who were staying at a St. Charles hotel face felony drug charges following an investigation into illegal drug distribution, according to a news release from the North Central Narcotics Task Force.

Trevor S. Brubaker, 21, is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, a Class 3 felony; possession of a controlled substance, clonazepam, a Class 4 felony; and possession of drug paraphernalia, a Class A misdemeanor.
