Adams County Drug Court Supervisor Faces Drug Charges
The U.S. Attorney's Office in central Illinois announced Wednesday that 59-year-old John Grotts of Ursa was charged with maintaining a drug-involved premises. Grotts is supervisor of the drug court program for the Adams County probation department, and authorities say he shared his home with a graduate of the program.
Authorities say in court papers that a search last month allegedly turned up items used to grow marijuana indoors, those used to make or use meth and marijuana and "a number of firearms."
Grotts turned himself in to authorities and appeared in federal court on Wednesday before being released on his own recognizance.
