A Woodstock man posted $5,000 bail Friday and was released on charges alleging that he delivered between 1 and 15 grams of cocaine.

McHenry County Sheriff’s deputies arrested 22-year-old Nikolas Bauer, of the 700 block of Leah Lane, last week.

Officers said the man delivered cocaine Jan. 30 and March 8, according to a criminal complaint filed Thursday in McHenry County court.

The exact weight and street value of the drugs Bauer is accused of delivering was not available.

It is unclear how police came in contact with Bauer and why charges were filed more than a month after the alleged drug deal.

He has hired attorneys from McHenry-based law firm Donahue and Walsh to represent him on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance and delivery of a controlled substance.

The most serious charge, delivery of a controlled substance, typically carries a penalty of four to 15 years in prison.

Bauer posted bail in cash Friday and was released from the McHenry County Jail. His first court appearance is scheduled for May 21.
