A Naperville teen faces up to 40 years in prison on charges that she was manufacturing and selling ecstacy.

Destinee E. Clementi, 18, was arrested Friday night in a parking lot near the southwest corner of 111th Street and Route 59 in the western suburb with 201 ecstasy tablets, police said.

She spent the night in the Will County Jail in Joliet in lieu of $7,500 bail, the Naperville Sun reported.

A month-long police investigation concluded Clementi was selling ecstasy on Naperville-area streets, said Sgt. John McAnally, supervisor of the department's special operations division.

Detectives got wind that she'd be selling the drugs in the parking lot Friday night and put the area under surveillance.  She was later found to have 201 ecstasy pills with a total estimated street sale value of $4,020.

She was charged with the manufacture of between 200 and 600 ecstasy pills. That crime is a "Super-X" felony carrying a mandatory sentence of nine to 40 years in prison upon conviction.

The Will County Sheriff's Office website indicated Clementi also was charged the manufacture of between 15 and 200 ecstasy pills.

McAnally said Clementi is unemployed, although the sheriff's website listed her as working in the grocery industry. Clementi's arraignment is set for Sept. 24.
