A McHenry woman has pleaded guilty to cocaine possession with intent to deliver after police caught her with more than 10 grams of cocaine at a local Walgreens.
McHenry police responded Sept. 10 to an anonymous report of a suspicious person at Walgreens, 3925 W. Elm St., McHenry police have said.
Magnolia Vasquez-Morales’ vehicle matched the caller’s description, and police stopped her in a nearby area.
Vasquez-Morales, 46, of the 3200 block of Meadow Lane, was found with about 10.1 grams of cocaine and a large amount of cash, according to a news release from the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Vasquez-Morales was sentenced to five years in prison, according to the release.
She originally was charged with manufacturing or delivering cocaine, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and child endangerment.
A person younger than 18 also was in the car at the time of the incident, police said.
A conviction of manufacturing or delivering cocaine would have been punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
Her attorney, Assistant Public Defender Eric Vogel, could not be reached for comment.
