Teen charged with possession of Ecstasy in Naperville

Aurora resident Robert T. Vodicka-Hirschmann, 19, is free on bond and awaiting trial in DuPage County Circuit Court in Wheaton, following his reputed misadventure over the Fourth of July weekend in Naperville.

Court records indicated he faces trial on a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance, along with two counts of driving under the influence of alcohol and individual charges of underage consumption of alcohol, transportation or possession of open alcohol and squealing or screeching the tires on his vehicle.

A recently-completed Naperville police report stated Vodicka-Hirschmann was arrested about 1:04 a.m. July 4, as he was driving his black, two-door, 1985 Chevrolet car east on Aurora Avenue near Birchwood Drive.

That intersection is directly north of the Naperville police station, at 1350 Aurora Ave. Sgt. Bill Davis confirmed Vodicka-Hirschmann’s allegedly reckless driving was witnessed by a patrol officer who happened to be leaving the station’s campus at that moment.

“The officer was leaving the police department when he noticed” the car stopped on Aurora Avenue at Birchwood Drive, Davis said Tuesday via email. “The (driver) had a green light, and began to make the tires on the vehicle squeal and screech, and smoke began to pour out from the rear of the vehicle.”

Davis said the car stalled just east of the intersection “as the officer came up behind it.” The officer then walked up to the driver, later identified as being Vodicka-Hirschmann, and determined he was drunk.

Police subsequently searched the car “and located a white, crystallized substance in a small container, and a plastic glass containing a brownish liquid” that smelled of alcohol, Davis said. The substance in the container “is suspected MDMA,” commonly known as Ecstasy, he said.

The substance has been sent to a law enforcement laboratory for testing.

DuPage County court records showed Vodicka-Hirschmann pleaded guilty April 10 to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct/breach of peace, stemming from an incident last October in Aurora. A judge that day placed him on a year of supervision, according to records.

Vodicka-Hirschmann is set to appear July 28 in court in the Naperville case.
