An employee who was cleaning up after Timothy Churnovic, 22, of 1200 Nicholson, Joliet, and Christopher Kocourek, 20, of 21457 W. Chestnut, Plainfield, left the 1500 S. Route 59 fast-food business found a cigarette packet that contained about 1.5 grams of heroin, Capt. Les O'Connor said.
He notified Joliet police at about 3 p.m., and they apprehended the pair when they returned to retrieve the left-behind drugs, O'Connor said. Both made comments to investigators in which they implicated themselves in possessing the heroin, he said.
Churnovic and Kocourek were charged with possession of a controlled substance. Churnovic was being held at the Will County jail Thursday night in lieu of $10,000 bond. Kocourek was released from the jail but his bond was not available.
