SYCAMORE – A woman from Missouri who police say sold amphetamines and other controlled substances to an undercover cop was released from jail on her signature Tuesday.

Julie A. Williams, 54, of the 300 block of Bellezza Drive, Ballwin, Missouri, was charged with unlawful distribution of a controlled substance after she reportedly sold tablets to an undercover DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office detective at 4:52 p.m. Tuesday in the first block of Church Street, Sandwich, according to court documents, in exchange for $1,980.

According to court documents,
the tablets later were identified at a Walgreens in Sandwich to be 70 tablets of amphetamine/dextroamphetamine and 150 tablets of alprazalom.

If convicted, Williams could face up to seven years in prison.

Amphetamine and dextroamphetamine are used to treat ADHD and alprazalom is used to treat anxiety, according to the Mayo Clinic.

At Williams’ bond hearing, Judge Robbin Stuckert noted that Williams had no previous criminal history or record of failing to appear. Family in the courtroom said that Williams could stay with them in Yorkville during court proceedings.

Stuckert appointed a public defender to represent Williams.

She is next due in court Sept. 6.
