CHAMPAIGN - The Champaign Police Department has announced that one arrest has been made in connection with an investigation into alleged weapon and narcotics offenses in the city.

Champaign police say Street Crimes Task Force officers opened an investigation in January 2016 into possible weapon and narcotic activity involving a 23-year-old man.  Police say a search warrant for the man's home was obtained during this investigation, and that officers executed that search warrant on February 8.

During the search, officers say they found a semi-automatic handgun, multiple rounds of ammunition of various calibers, and about 20 grams of suspected heroin.  The resident, identified as Keisean Cooper, 23, was then taken into custody.

Cooper faces a preliminary charge of manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance.  He is being held in custody on $75,000 bond.

Champaign police say their investigation is ongoing.  If you have information regarding this arrest, or any other crimes in your community, you are urged to call Crime Stoppers at (217) 373-8477.
