NORTHBROOK – On Thursday, June 8 at 6 p.m., Northbrook police arrested Christian Porras, 21 years old, of 237 Prairie Avenue, Highwood, on the charge of Unlawful Delivery of Cannabis within 1,000 feet of school grounds, according to a Northbrook Police Department news release.
The charge is a Class 3 Felony and follows a weeklong investigation conducted by Northbrook detectives. Investigators allege that Porras sold marijuana/THC-infused candy, in the shape of a star, to a 13-year-old Northbrook resident. This type of drug-infused candy is referred to as a “gummy” because of its textural similarity to a popular candy.
Porras was transported to the Second District Courthouse in Skokie on Friday morning. The pending court date is tentatively set for June 14, at 10:30am, in Room 105 at the Skokie Courthouse.
From the Northbrook Police Department; please note that an arrest is not a finding of guilt. Only a court of law can make that determination.
