An Illinois State Police Trooper from Greenville has been arrested for possession and manufacture of a controlled substance.
The State Police Division of Internal Investigation (DII) says an investigation of 40-year-old Trooper Nolan Morgan began on Thursday immediately after internal information was received that Morgan was allegedly involved in the possession and manufacturing of drugs at his residence. Investigators conducted multiple witness interviews and completed a search of Morgan’s home, where approximately 259 grams of psilocybin mushrooms packaged for delivery were seized.
On Friday, Morgan was arrested by investigators at District 11 Headquarters in Collinsville.
Morgan has been charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Intent to Deliver and Manufacture of a Controlled Substance, psilocybin mushrooms (both Class X Felony charges).
Morgan’s bond was set at $150,000 (10% applies) by the Honorable Judge Christopher Bower. Morgan is being held at the Bond County Jail awaiting his next court appearance.
Morgan was assigned to District 11 Patrol in Collinsville after graduating from the Illinois State Police Academy in June of 2018. Morgan has been relieved of his police duties, and the investigation is ongoing by DII.
No further information is available at this time.
