Drug Ring Members Brought Heroin from Chicago to West Suburbs: Police

Eleven men have been arrested. The Woodridge Police Department assisted in the two-month long investigation.

Eleven men were arrested this week and charged with transporting heroin from Chicago's west side to buyers in DuPage County, according to the Chicago Sun-Times

The men are from Warrenville, Naperville, West Chicago, Geneva and Chicago. The DuPage County Sheriff’s offices, U.S. Homeland Security agents and West Chicago and Woodridge police assisted in the two-month investigation, the Sun-Times reported. 

One man, Miguel Fernandez, 23, of West Chicago, was charged with 10 felony drug conspiracy and delivery charges. 

Police said Fernandez bought heroin on Chicago's west side and then delivered it to "numerous" west suburban residents, who either used the drug or resold it, the Sun-Times reported

"He was caught reselling the drug to a juvenile on at least one occasion, and selling heroin within 1,000 feet of a school two other times," the Sun-Times reported.
