Cop posing as UPS agent makes drug bust

Two Lake County residents were charged with drug-related crimes after accepting a package of marijuana sent to them from Arizona through the United Parcel Service, police said.

Nikema C. Parker, 33, of the 2300 block of 14th Street in Waukegan, and Michael Womack, 26, of the 3000 block of 20th Place in North Chicago, are free on bond after receiving the package delivered Tuesday afternoon by an undercover officer posing as a UPS delivery driver, said Sgt. Christopher Thompson of the Lake County Sheriff’s Department.

Both are due back in court on April 7.

Thompson said Lake County investigators received a call Monday from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office in Arizona. Officials said they intercepted a suspicious package at UPS scheduled to be delivered to Parker’s home address in Waukegan.

Sheriff’s investigators located the package at the UPS distribution center in Gurnee Tuesday, and Lake County police K-9 Zulu sniffed out drugs inside the package. After getting a search warrant, Thompson said, the package was opened and about 4.2 pounds of marijuana was discovered.

Investigators repackaged the box for delivery, and the undercover officer drove the package to Parker’s Waukegan address, Thompson said.

Investigators descended on the home after Womack accepted the package from the undercover officer, Thompson said.

Deputies also discovered illegal fireworks in the residence following a search of the home, Thompson said.

Womack and Parker each were charged with single counts of possession of cannabis with intent to deliver, possession of cannabis, and a misdemeanor count of unlawful possession of fireworks.

If convicted of the crimes, the two could face up to 10 years in prison, Thompson said.

“We cannot thank UPS enough for their continued cooperation in drug-related cases like this,” said Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran. “Our investigators did an outstanding job teaming up with them.”

    ‘Sup! Just wanted to say good site. Continue with the great work you’re doing!

  26. So when I feel the story begin to develop, I create it then. Or I set it aside until I can sit down and write it. I don’t let it develop until then. At least, I try not to let it.

  27. I like to work on 2-3 stories at a time. Because for me each story represents a certain issue I’m addressing or a particular emotion I’m feeling. By having several different stories to work on, you have several different outlets and you never really feel pressured.

    what dont the lAke county sheriff do something about the men hooking up with other men in the parking lot at the rear of 41 news in wadsworth?i live near by and have complained to the village and have reported this activty to the sheriffs dept and still their is not a regular patrol of this place.i am sure many sex offenders are loitering in the rear parking lot of 41 news violating there sex offender status and problem a few already in violation.men loiter in this parking area frequently for the purpose of having sex with another man.i guess it is ok for these sex offenders and sex addicts to have a place to meet up in public with no fear in lake county il.i am new to this area but i would guess that this has being going on for along time.does the owner of the 41 news property have some kind of ties to the lake county goverment that protects these kind of activities from being stopped on this property?or does the lake county sheriff just simply turn a blind eye to it?come on what is the sheriffs priorities protecting the county from victimless crime like smoking marijuana or protecting the county from sex offenders and potential sex offenders?i do not have a problem with a adult store existing but if the store is going to not do anything about this kind of activity happening on its property well i think it shoukld be shut down so that the others in the area can learn br example.
