A Chicago resident was sentenced to four years in prison Wednesday after being arrested by Evanston Police Department officers in 2014 for possession of cocaine, EPD spokesman Perry Polinski said.

The man, 34-year-old David Palomares, was arrested in February 2014 after officers recovered 170 grams cocaine and $2,000 in cash from his Chicago home in the 7000 block of North Oakley Avenue, Polinski said. The bust was part of an ongoing EPD special investigation, and Palomares was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance and possession with intent to deliver, Polinski said.

Palomares remained in jail since the arrest and plead guilty at the Skokie Courthouse on Wednesday to the manufacture and distribution of cocaine, Polinski said.

Palomares’ sentence includes four years in prison, two years of supervision and $2,464 in fines, police said.
