DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin announced that bond was set late Tuesday afternoon, February 8, 2022 for a Woodridge resident accused of possessing more than 55 grams of illegal narcotics and illegally possessing a loaded handgun. Tenzell Terry, age 22, of the block of 8100 Route 53, appeared at a bond hearing yesterday afternoon where Judge Robert Kleeman set bond at $350,000 with 10% to apply. Terry has been charged with one count of Armed Violence (Class X Felony), two counts of Possession with Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance (Class X Felony) two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance (Class 1 Felony) and one count of Unlawful Possession of a Weapon by a Felon (Class 3 Felony).

On Tuesday, February 8, 2022, at approximately 5:30 a.m., as part of their ongoing investigations into the sale of illegal narcotics in DuPage County, officers with the Woodridge Police Department executed a search warrant at Terry’s residence. Occupants of the residence included Tenzell Terry, another individual, and Terry’s one-year-old baby. It is alleged that while performing their duties, officers found a loaded Glock 9mm handgun with an extended magazine of thirty rounds and one bullet in the chamber underneath the mattress in Terry’s baby’s crib. It is further alleged that located in a closet in the baby’s room were items of clothing containing packaged heroin/fentanyl (approximately 20 grams) and cocaine (approximately 37 grams). Allegedly, in a second bedroom, officers found a second magazine with five rounds inside and two additional empty magazines along with $1,064 in cash. Terry was taken into custody at this time.

“The very idea that someone would hide a loaded weapon with one bullet in the chamber and an extended magazine under a mattress where his baby slept, as is alleged in this case, is just beyond belief. Additionally, the illegal narcotics allegedly found in the baby’s room are further evidence of Mr. Terry’s complete disregard for the safety of a one-year-old baby. I commend the Illinois State Police, the DuPage County Metropolitan Enforcement Group and the Woodridge Police Department for their work on this case and for their continued efforts in keeping illegal narcotics out of our communities. I also thank Assistant State’s Attorney Sean Kinsella for his efforts in securing charges against Mr. Terry.”

— DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin

Terry’s next court appearance is scheduled for March 7, 2022, in front of Judge Brian Telander for arraignment.

Members of the public are reminded that this complaint contains only charges and is not proof of the defendant’s guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the government’s burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
