A suspected drug dealer is being held in the Will County Adult Detention facility in lieu of $300,000 bail.
Edward Gutierrez, 43, of the 2100 block of Siegel Drive in Crest Hill is scheduled to appear in Will County court Nov. 10 on a charge of manufacture/delivery of more than 15 grams of cocaine.
The charge is a Class X felony that carries a mandatory sentencing range of six to 30 years upon conviction.
Joliet Police arrested Gutierrez on Oct. 19 at his home, where they also reportedly seized 82 grams of cocaine packaged in 13 bags, a digital scale and $1,029 in cash.
Joliet Deputy Police Chief Trafton said Gutierrez and his wife cooperated with the arrest, but police “neutralized a pit bull” in the home that was preparing to attack them.
