NAPERVILLE – Two Naperville teens were recently charged for allegedly selling ecstasy and cocaine to undercover police, according to a news release from the DuPage County Sheriff's Office.

Marco A. Aguilar-Herrera, 19, of the 800 block of Benedetti Drive, was charged with manufacture or delivery of ecstasy after his arrest Aug. 7, at which time he reportedly brought an officer about 20 grams of the drug, the release stated.

The DuPage County Sheriff's Office Tactical Narcotics Team began investigating Aguilar-Herrera after receiving information in May that prompted detectives to conduct a series of drug purchases, according to the release.

His bond was set at $100,000. He is expected in court Sept. 8.

In a separate but related investigation, Carlos Sebastian Romero, 19, of the 25W00 block of Keswick Drive, was charged with manufacture or delivery of ecstasy and manufacture or delivery of cocaine after being arrested Aug. 27 by DuPage County Sheriff's Office tactical officers on a two-count felony warrant for possession and delivery of both drugs, the release stated.

Romero allegedly sold ecstasy and cocaine to an undercover Tactical Narcotics Team detective on multiple occasions, according to the release.

He was issued a bond of $75,000. His next court date is also Sept. 8.
