A man from Naperville’s west side who earlier this year dropped a bag of cocaine in full view of Naperville police has been convicted in that case.
Marius Sinkevicius, 36, lives on the 200 block of North Whispering Hills Drive, in Naperville’s Brush Hill neighborhood. He pleaded guilty to a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance in connection with the incident last winter.
Sinkevicius’ plea was accepted by DuPage County Circuit Court Judge John J. Kinsella, according to court records. Kinsella on Monday ordered him to undergo substance abuse testing and counseling, perform 30 hours of community service work and spend two years on first-time, controlled substance offender probation, records showed.
Police arrested Sinkevicius about 11:44 p.m. March 14 inside Bar Louie, at 22 E. Chicago Ave. in downtown Naperville.
Sgt. Bill Davis said police that evening were conducting a routine “bar check” when a patron told them about “two subjects that were seen ingesting what appeared to be cocaine in the bathroom.” The patron pointed out a man police later identified as being Sinkevicius, Davis wrote in a March email.
As police approached Sinkevicius, “they observed him discard a small, plastic baggie on the floor,” Davis said. Police retrieved the bag and found it contained a white, powdery substance that later tested positive as being 2.2 grams of cocaine, he said.
Davis added no one else was arrested or charged in the incident.
Court documents indicated Sinkevicius had no significant, prior record in DuPage, Kane and Will counties.
