A young Naperville man who was convicted earlier this year of driving under the influence has new and more serious legal trouble, after being charged with obtaining prescription medication through the mail and selling those pills to others.

Brian P. Noone, 20, is free on $2,000 bond. He faces trial on a felony charge of “other amount Schedule 4,” for allegedly accepting more than 600 illegally-obtained Xanax pills through the mail, according to Will County Circuit Court records and Naperville police.

Noone was arrested at 7:10 p.m. Friday, following an investigation by members of the Naperville Police Department’s Special Operations Group and agents of the U.S. Postal Inspectors’ Office, police Sgt. Bill Davis said Tuesday in a release.

Authorities began investigating Noone on May 16, Davis said. That was when police were “notified by a Federal Task Force, consisting of the U.S. Postal Inspectors, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Department of Homeland Security, of a possible, illegal drug-trafficking distribution point in Naperville,” he said.

Special Operations Group and postal inspection agents “conducted further investigation, which revealed that Noone was illegally obtaining the narcotics through the mail and, in turn, selling the drugs to others,” Davis said.

Those agents on Friday obtained and then executed a search warrant at Noone’s home on the 4100 Block of Royal Mews Circle. That is in the English Rows condominium community southwest of 103rd Street and Route 59 on Naperville’s far southwest side.

Agents that evening “recovered a package containing over 600 Xanax pills … from the residence,” Davis said. Noone was home at the time and taken into custody, he said.

Xanax, or Alprazolam, is typically used to treat panic and social anxiety disorders.

Police charged Noone with one count of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver, a Class 3 felony. A June 23 preliminary court hearing has been set in the matter.

Examinations of court documents and police records revealed Noone was arrested about 12:53 p.m. Sept. 7 near Chicago Avenue and Huffman Street just east of downtown Naperville. Police charged him with two counts of driving under the influence and one count each of possessing a false identification card and driving on unsafe tires.

Noone on Feb. 18 pleaded guilty to one of the DUI charges, with the other counts dismissed, according to records on file in DuPage County Circuit Court. A judge that day ordered him to perform 100 hours of community service work, enroll in the county’s DUI school and spend two years on supervision as his penalty in that case.

Records indicated Noone also was arrested about 8:02 p.m. on Sept. 1, 2012 on Royal Mews Circle, and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. A Will County judge on Oct. 26, 2012 found him guilty of that charge and placed him on a year of supervision, records showed.
