Zille was arrested on November 15, 2019, after a Rochester police investigator working with the confidential informant successfully completed five purchases of cocaine and THC vaping oil from him between September 24 and October 17, 2019. The criminal complaint states the informant paid Zill nearly $4000 for the purchase of more than 55 Grams of cocaine and the vaping cartridges containing the THC oil.

The charge of illegal possession of a firearm stemmed from a search warrant executed at Zill's residence on October 31, 2019, that led to the discovery of a shotgun and shotgun shells.

Zill is scheduled to be sentenced on both convictions on March 28.
