0 0

Dixon Police Chief Steve Howell said the war against illegal drugs in the Dixon area continues. Recently, several investigations have resulted in numerous arrests involving cocaine.

Howell went on to say his department has strengthened relations with other area law enforcement groups in order to combine their efforts.

In the Sauk Valley we have the Blackhawk Area Taskforce. To the north of us is SLANT, which stands for State Line Area Narcotics Taskforce and includes Ogle and Winnebago Counties.

Howell said it is important to deal with SLANT and Rockford Law Enforcement since the majority of illegal drugs coming into Lee County originate in Rockford.

The Dixon Police Department have conducted several investigations into Cocaine Trafficking in Lee County. In recent months investigations have brought arrests of several persons.

Following a several month’s long investigation, persons at the Candy Factory Gentleman’s Club were arrested on cocaine charges.

Another investigation now has a Dixon man facing several charges, all dealing with cocaine distribution in the Dixon area.
