Donald Ledbetter, 54, of the 8000 block of Osceola was charged with Class 4 felony possession of cannabis Sept. 28 at about 11:20 p.m. Officers responded to the home for a burglar alarm going off--both front door and living room motion activations. Officers observed the front door had signs of force, according to the report.
Two officers and a K-9 officer searched the house for offenders, and found a cannabis or narcotic odor in the northeast bedroom, the report indicated. They discovered four gallon-sized clear plastic resealable bags of green leafy substance, which they said was suspect cannabis. It weighed 496 grams, which is just over one pound plus one ounce.
Police asked Ledbetter about the suspect cannabis and he admitted he has a few ounces for personal use, according to the report. His court date was Oct. 9 in the Skokie branch of the Cook County courts.
