St. Clair County Drug Tactical Unit and the Special Response Team on Tuesday executed a search warrant at 719 Hecker St. in Belleville.
The warrant was issued after a month-long investigation by DTU for illegal drug sales from the residence, said St. Clair County Sheriff's Lt. Kurt Eversman.
DTU officers searched and found crack cocaine, marijuana, scales and an undisclosed amount of money. Officers also discovered a suspect with a 2-year-old and a 10-month-old infant.
Deveion D. Edwards, 26, was charged with unlawful possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, namely Jefferson School at 1400 N. Charles in Belleville. It is a Class X felony punishable by 6 to 30 years in prison.
The children were released to the custody of their mother, Eversman said.
Edwards was being held Thursday on $250,000 bail at the St. Clair County Jail.
