A Palos Hills man is facing a felony charge for possession of a controlled substance after allegedly selling candy laced with drugs to undercover detectives.
Alexander Pacura, 21, was arrested at 3:50 p.m. July 26 after selling the candy, which tested positive for amphetamines, to police, according to reports. He appeared in court July 27 for a bond hearing.
The drug — a schedule 1 narcotic — is a stimulant commonly prescribed to children for treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Normal side effects include a decrease in appetite and fatigue, but taken in high doses over a longer period in time the drug can cause psychosis and delusional behavior.
