Monroe County Sheriff

April 22

More charges have been filed following a theft stemming from a cannabis deal south of Hecker on April 4. Jeffrey L. Gulley Jr., 26, of Red Bud, was charged with felony robbery and unlawful possession of cannabis with intent to deliver (more than 10 grams but under 30 grams). The incident occurred around 8 p.m. near Powell Road. Matthew T. Korves, 22, of Red Bud, was charged last month with robbery in the case. Court information alleges that Korves took a bag containing cannabis from Benjamin Huegle, 19, of Belleville, by threatening the use of force — that being a BB gun which police said looked like a real pistol. Huegle was also charged on April 22 with felony delivery of cannabis and misdemeanor possession of cannabis for his role in the incident. Deputies turned this case over to the Metropolitan Enforcement Group of Southwestern Illinois for investigation.
