Keen’s home was searched about 8 a.m. by members of the Kane County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigation Unit and officers from the Geneva and Batavia police departments after a weeklong drug investigation.

Police found Keen in the basement in possession of 36 Xanax pills that he did not have a prescription for. More prescription pills were found in a nearby sump pump. The estimated street value of the pills was $720, police said.

Keen was taken to the Kane County Adult Justice Center and was released after a bond hearing on Wednesday, police said.
