Orland Park Man Arrested on Drug Charges

Michael J. Kroll, 46, of the 9100 block of West Brookside Court in Orland Park, was arrested for felony possession of a controlled substance and possession of narcotic instruments, as well as being charged with driving without registration or insurance, after a traffic stop near the intersection of Abbey Drive and LaGrange Road.

A Frankfort Police officer stopped Kroll's black Cadillac around 11:20 a.m. for an expired registration, said Cmdr. Kevin Keegan. After pulling over, Kroll opened his car door and reached under his seat, which concerned the officer, who thought Kroll might be hiding contraband or grabbing a weapon, Keegan said. Kroll then got out of the Cadillac, which also had a front-seat passenger, and refused to get back in, leading the officer to call for backup, Keegan added.

A search of the car to find out what Kroll was reaching for uncovered two syringes--one with a missing plunger syringes--and a charred Altoids breath mints box containing cotton balls with a residue that tested positive for opiates, Keegan said. The officer then searched Kroll's person and found oxycodone tablets that Kroll didn't have a prescription for, Keegan added.

Kroll was booked into Will County Jail and released on bail. The passenger was not charged, Keegan said.
