AURORA, Ill., Oct. 2 (UPI) -- Authorities in Illinois said a man on probation in a cocaine delivery case was arrested when he allegedly brought cocaine to a courthouse.

Kane County sheriff's deputies said Alex Robinson, 37, of Aurora, was due in court Wednesday on allegations of violating his probation from the 2006 cocaine delivery case when he emptied his pockets at the security checkpoint and dropped a bag of cocaine into a bin, the Chicago Sun-Times Media Network reported Tuesday.

"I don't know how you forget," Kane County sheriff's Lt. Pat Gengler said. "It's not like you don't know there's a checkpoint coming up."

Robinson was arrested and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance.
