A judge will decide Jan. 11 whether police overstepped their boundaries by searching the home of a former Hebron village president facing drug and weapon charges.
Attorneys argued Friday whether police discovered suspected crack cocaine in John G. Jacobson’s home March 17, 2016, through an unlawful search.
Jacobson faces several gun and drug possession charges in connection with the search. Officers were called to the man’s Hebron home to give medical attention for a suspected overdose, according to a motion filed June 4 in McHenry County court.
Defense attorneys have asked to quash the warrant sheriff’s deputies used to search Jacobson’s home. Prosecutors objected to the request, claiming police saw a used crack pipe and pill bottle containing suspected crack rocks out in the open, according to reports.
Judge Sharon Prather struck Jacobson’s Nov. 26 trial date.
