MORRISON – A Chicago man faces four felony charges after police say he twice sold crack cocaine to Sterling Police operatives.

Reginald D. Washington, 55, was arrested Friday and charged with selling 1 to 15 grams of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a church; possession of 15 to 100 grams with the intent to deliver, possession of 1 to 15 grams with the intent to deliver; and selling 1 to 15 grams; all felonies. The first two charges carry 6 to 30 years in prison.

His bond was set at $150,000; he posted $15,000 and was released Sunday.

Two controlled drug buys were conducted with Washington, and the home in Fulton where he came from before selling the cocaine was searched, resulting in the charges, Sterling Police said in a news release.

The street value of the drugs purchased was $400, the release said.
