Elgin teens try to pass off pancake mix as kilo of cocaine, busted by undercover police

ELGIN -- A pair of teenagers thought they were pulling a fast one when they tried to pass off pancake mix as a kilo of cocaine.

The joke was on them when they learned the buyers were undercover Elgin Police.

18 year old Rafael Osorio and 19 year old Jamie Anselmo are facing felony drug charges.

Police say they agreed to sell a kilo of coke to undercover officers for 27,000 dollars.

They packaged the pancake mix in plastic and tape to make it look like illicit drugs.
