ST. CHARLES – A St. Charles woman remained in the Kane County Jail on Tuesday afternoon on a $200,000 bond after she was charged in December with several counts of felony drug possession, according to court records.

Julie B. Welch, 50, of the 1200 block of Indiana Avenue, was charged on Dec. 23 after an investigation of her home by members of the North Central Narcotics Task Force.

Her next court date is set for Jan. 22.

Welch has been charged with several counts of felony drug possession and felony manufacturing/delivering a controlled substance. She also was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor.

The felony charges include unlawfully possessing with intent to deliver morphine, hydrocodone, amphetamine, hydromorphone, oxycodone, methylphenidate, diazepam, clonazepam, alprazolam, flurazepam and carisoprodol.

Hydrocone is in a group of drugs called narcotic pain relievers, according to the website www.drugs.com.

Amphetamine is a stimulant and an appetite suppressant, the website stated, and stimulates the central nervous system (nerves and brain) by increasing the amount of certain chemicals in the body.

Welch also is being charged with a felony count of possessing with intent to deliver more than 30 grams of marijuana.
