(McHENRY) A northwest suburban man is facing several felony charges after he allegedly sold cocaine to undercover police officers near a park.

Steven M. Grimm, 25, of Arlington Heights, faces three counts each of delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a park, delivery of a controlled substance, and possession of a controlled substance, according to the McHenry County sheriff’s office.

Grimm was arrested and authorities seized about 18.8 grams of cocaine, worth about $1,880, according to the statement.

Bond was set at $200,000 for Grimm, who is next scheduled to appear in court Thursday in Woodstock.
