CHICAGO (STMW) – A Northwest Side registered sex offender was ordered held on $25,000 bond Sunday after police found the so-called date rape drug GHB on him after he left the scene of a Saturday night accident.

On Sunday, Judge Israel Desierto ordered Abidin Redzeposki held on $25,000 bond, according to a Cook County Criminal Court clerk. Redzeposki is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing Dec. 14 at North Felony Court (Br. 42), according to the clerk.

Redzeposki, 31, of the 1900 block of Humboldt Avenue, was charged with possession of methamphetamine, manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, leaving the scene of an accident and driving on a suspended driver’s license, police said. He was also cited with no insurance, failure to keep in lanes and failure to reduce speed, police said.

Redzeposki, a registered sex offender, was arrested at 2958 N. Southport Ave. at 6:40 p.m. Saturday after he returned to the scene of a hit-and-run accident, according to a police report.

After he was arrested, police found a clear plastic straw in his left front pants pocket, and he told police that he had used the straw to snort cocaine the previous night, the report said.

The report said the vehicle he was driving was searched and police found several drug paraphernalia items, including a scale and empty zipper bags, a plastic straw, three plastic zipper bags containing a white crystalline substance suspected of being crystal methamphetamine, which had a street value of $1,056 and a clear plastic bottle containing two ounces of clear liquid suspected of being the so-called date rape drug GHB with a street value of $400.

He admitted he fled the scene because his license was suspended and he had no valid insurance, according to the police report. No one was injured in the hit-and-run.

Belmont Area detectives are investigating.
