Following an investigation into alleged sales of narcotics to Evanstonians out of a residence in Chicago, just over the border, Evanston police obtained a search warrant of the residence, said Commander James Elliot. On Aug. 26, members of the Evanston Police Department executed the search warrant, and seized 23 bags of a brown powder suspected to be heroin, 7 bags of a white rock like substance suspected to be crack cocaine, 35 pills believed to be used as a heroin cutting agent, and 15 assorted pills believed to be controlled substances, said the Commander. Investigators also found evidence of drug packaging materials in the apartment, he said.
Two persons were arrested as a result of this investigation, and each was charged with five counts of Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substances and one count of Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Intent to Deliver. A third person was charged with Aggravated Assault to a Peace Officer and Resisting Arrest after he attempted to enter the residence after officers secured the location during the execution of the search warrant, said the Commander.
