BLOOMINGTON — A 23-year-old man is facing cocaine-dealing charges after police say they were asked to remove him early Saturday morning from a Bloomington bar.

An arrest record provided by the McLean County State's Attorney's Office said Bloomington police officers were told by a manager at a bar on downtown Main Street that they believed someone was selling cocaine in the bathroom and they wanted him removed from the business.

Police entered the bar and found a man who fit the manager's description, the report said, and searched his bag. Officers said in the report they found three bags holding cocaine, and a clear pill labeled as psilocybin.

The record identified the man as William J. Moon, and said he admitted to selling the bags of cocaine for $95 each. He was arrested at 1:20 a.m. Saturday.

Additionally, the record stated a fourth bag of cocaine was found after Moon was searched at the jail. Police said in the report the seized bags weighed about 6.5 grams.

According to the F.B.I, the United States experienced its largest one-year increase on record in murders in 2020.

Moon was charged with manufacturing or delivering of less than 15 grams of cocaine, a Class 2 felony, and possession of a controlled substance, a Class 4 felony, the arrest record said.

His bond was set at $25,000 and his arraignment hearing is scheduled for Dec. 10.
