A Godfrey man was charged Monday in Madison County Circuit Court with a felony charge of unlawful possession of a controlled substance (alprazolam), Madison County Sheriff Robert J. Hertz said in a press release.
Police identified the man as Dominic R. Goodman, 19, of the 300 block of St. Thomas Drive.
On Saturday, April 26, at about 1:10 a.m., a Madison County sheriff’s deputy conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle at Godfrey Road and Homer Adams Parkway, Godfrey, for a registration violation.
The deputy identified the driver as Dominic R. Goodman and found him to be in possession of a pipe used to consume cannabis. Goodman was taken into custody for possession of drug paraphernalia. A subsequent search of Goodman resulted in the discovery of a plastic bag containing cannabis and unlawfully possessed alprazolam tablets.
Goodman was transported to the Madison County Jail, where he was held pending a formal review of facts by the Madison County States Attorney’s Office. Goodman also was charged with misdemeanor charges of unlawful possession of cannabis, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Judge Neil Schroeder issued the felony warrant and information setting Goodman’s bond at $15,000.
