One of the largest street-level seizures of heroin in La Salle County history could result in a man going to prison for up to 30 years.

Wilfredo Candelaria of Peru appeared Friday in La Salle County Circuit Court. He’s charged on a Class X felony for possession of a controlled substance. He was caught with more than 100 packets of heroin and faces 6-30 years in prison with no probation.

Candelaria will be sentenced at a later date.

Nora Toovey of DePue was arrested along with Candelaria and was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver, a class 1 felony.

Toovey faces 4-15 years in prison.
