Lee County Sheriff's Department

There was a bunch of police activity Monday afternoon in Sublette.  We now know why.

Several officers carried out a search warrant at a home in the 200 block of John Street.  They allegedly found nearly 30 grams of cocaine and more than 30 Xanax pills. 

Thirty-six-year-old Hank Nickel of Sublette and 18-year-old Antonio Simmons of Carol Stream were both arrested for possession of a controlled substance.  Twenty-year-old Christopher Moore-Bennett of Sublette was arrested for not only possession of a controlled substance but also dealing and possessing pot. 

All three men were taken to the Lee County Jail.
