On March 18, 2010, the Hanover Park Police Department's Special Operations Group conducted a drug sweep that targeted individuals selling drugs out of their residences. Two search warrants were executed at separate residences. The first residence was located at 7350 Jonquil Terrace where 21 grams of cocaine was seized. Juan Morales, 33, of Hanover Park was arrested and charged with one felony count each of Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver. He is scheduled to appear at a bond hearing on March 19 at the Cook County Courthouse at Rolling Meadows.
The second incident resulted in the arrest of one individual; however, the investigation remains on-going and no further information will be released at this time.
Chief Webb states that "the department is setting a tone and sending a message that this type of activity will not be tolerated."
