McLean authorities find $21,000 worth of oxycodone in Tuesday bust


Three Detroit-area men were arrested in McLean County and charged with felonies after police say they found hundreds of oxycodone pills on them during a Tuesday traffic stop on U.S. Highway 83.

Keron Carter-Whaley-El, Daivon Perkins, and Harvey Hull Jr., all 19, are charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, according to court documents.

A McLean County sheriff’s deputy became suspicious of their behavior during the traffic stop. There was evidence in the car -- dryer sheets and a hollowed-out jar of peanut butter -- of attempts to throw off K-9 detection, according to an affidavit. Authorities say they found a total of 262 oxycodone pills with a value of nearly $21,000 on the men.

All three men made initial court appearances Wednesday. South Central District Judge Gail Hagerty set bail at $10,000 for Carter-Whaley-El and at $7,500 each for Perkins and Hull. They were still in jail Thursday afternoon. Preliminary appearances for the men are Feb. 5. Attorneys aren’t listed for them in court documents.
