Major Drug Busts in Chicago, IL
In a significant crackdown on drug trafficking in Chicago, federal and local law enforcement agencies have made notable strides against the sale of fentanyl-laced heroin and cocaine. One operation led to the charging of 13 individuals accused of operating on the city’s West Side, particularly in Humboldt Park. This comprehensive investigation, involving Homeland Security Investigations, the Chicago Police Department, and the IRS Criminal Investigation Division, focused on dismantling an open-air drug market. The operation netted approximately ten firearms, substantial quantities of cocaine, over 250 grams of heroin containing fentanyl, and numerous vehicles alleged to be used in narcotics trafficking.
Another probe resulted in charges against ten alleged members or associates of a Chicago street gang, aiming to disrupt the distribution of heroin and cocaine. This investigation successfully closed three open-air drug markets in the West Garfield Park neighborhood. Through extensive undercover work and surveillance, authorities seized several kilograms of drugs, including heroin laced with fentanyl, cocaine, firearms, and ammunition. The accused individuals, believed to be connected with the Four Corner Hustlers street gang, played various roles within this illicit operation, from overseeing drug sales at illegal markets to handling the logistics of drug distribution.
