Illinois police arrest 3 for drug crimes charges

Police in Illinois recently arrested three out-of-state men for allegedly engaging in drug-related activities. All three men are facing multiple charges related to weapons and drug crimes. At least one of the charges is a class X for possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver. This type of felony is the most serious offense in the state of Illinois.

On Aug. 24, 2019, police were given a tip that a widely known out-of-state drug dealer might be in the area. Police started an investigation and ultimately arranged a meeting with the suspected drug dealer. It is unclear what circumstances led up to the arrests, but it is possible that it occurred during or shortly after the planned meeting.

Authorities claim that they found nearly 7 pounds of heroin among the three men, who are aged 26, 28 and 45 years old. Police also say they found small amounts of what may be black tar heroin, crystal methamphetamine and loaded handguns on their persons. While searching the group's pickup truck, crystal meth, suspected heroin, additional drugs, more loaded handguns and other drugs were also purportedly uncovered. Police obtained a search warrant for a different location and say that they also found more heroin and what they believe are prescription narcotic pills.

There is often little time to waste when dealing with serious drug crimes charges. Defendants in Illinois often find that making an early start on criminal defense planning can be helpful in determining how best to proceed. Some find that they can secure the best possible outcome by fighting the charges to the fullest extent throughout criminal court proceedings. Others can get the same outcome by negotiating plea deals with the prosecution.
