A husband and wife from Round Lake Beach were arrested on drug-related charges Oct. 18 after police found three ounces of heroin, drug paraphernalia and $1,500 in cash in their home.
Linda Armstrong, 37, and Jeffrey Armstrong, 35, of the 1600 block of Melrose Street were charged with possession of intent to deliver a controlled substance (a Class X felony) and unlawful possession of a controlled substance (a Class 1 felony), according to Lake County Sheriff's Office Sgt.
