At least 10 people appeared in court Sunday to face felony drug charges related to Lollapalooza, including a Chicago man who prosecutors say was carrying more than 150 pills of MDMA, also known as Ecstasy.
When authorities approached him, Magee ran away and tried to get a rid of a white bottle
Police found him in possession of 153 pills of MDMA — worth more than $3,000 — and a large bag containing seven smaller bags of marijuana.
Magee was charged with possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor count of possession of cannabis, manufacture or delivery more than 15 Ecstasy pills and two felony counts of delivery of cannabis.
Authorities also arrested Anthony Nelson, 24, of the 4300 block of West Fairfax Street in Oak Lawn, after he shouted, “Who wants molly?” Saturday afternoon at Lollapaloozarecords. “Molly” is slang for MDMA.
A nearby officer responded to Nelson's inquiry and found four bags of MDMA in his front pocket. In total, Nelson allegedly had 27 pills of the substance, worth nearly $700.
Nelson was charged with possession of a controlled substance.
A Metra police officer found drugs on a Chicago teen who ignored the officer’s warning about hopping the fence around Lollapalooza. Dylan Horach, 18, of the 3700 block of North Sacramento Avenue, tried again Saturday evening to cross the fence near the Van Buren Metra station and was arrested.
Horach had in his possession a hit of LSD and about 4 grams of a substance he told the officer he found on the beach. The powder was heroin, the court records said.
Horach was charged with trespassing on state land, delivery of less than 5 grams of LSD and possession of a controlled substance. Sullivan set Horach’s bail at $10,000.
