    Cheryl Nordlander, 49, and her son Jason, 21, were arrested and charged for multiple counts of drug possession, dealing, and manufacturing. Police were alerted by the Nordlanders' neighbors, who had observed a suspicious amount of foot traffic at the house day and night.

    A mother and son suspected of dealing drugs out of their Schaumburg home have been arrested and charged with drug manufacturing and possession.

    Cheryl Nordlander, 49, and her son Jason, 21, were each charged with manufacturing and dealing of cannabis, possession of cannabis, possession of drug paraphernalia, and two counts of possession of a controlled substance, according to a police report released Monday.

    Police began surveillance of the Norlander house after neighbors suspected drug activity. After observing suspicious traffic in and out of the house at all hours of the day, officers obtained a warrant and found large amounts of drugs in plain view.

    Officers recovered 30 Vicodin pills, 1.5 grams of hashish, 38.5 grams of cannabis and almost $2,700. They also found equipment for cannabis cultivation and evidence of a disassembled grow house.

    Cheryl Norlander was on probation at the time of the arrest for a previous drug charge. Bond for both her and her son was set for $10,000.

    Cheryl will appear in court Thursday. Her son’s court date was set for August 19.
