Evanston police seized more than $15,000 worth of cocaine Wednesday morning in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood.

Detectives from the special operations group executed a search warrant in the 7400 block of North Oakley Avenue. Officers discovered more than 170 grams of cocaine, which, depending on its quality, could have an estimated street value between $15,000 and $18,000, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. Officers also found about $2,000 in cash.

Police arrested 32-year-old Daniel Palomares in his home where they found the narcotics in connection with unlawful possession of a controlled substance as well as unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver — both felonies.

Palomares appeared in bond court Thursday where bond was set at $90,000 with electronic home monitoring if the bond is posted. He is scheduled to appear in court March 5.
