Dozens Arrested In Local Drug-Gun Sweep Called ''Operation Falcon''


More than 70 people have been indicted on criminal charges in a wide-ranging, multi-agency enforcement action that local officials are calling “Operation Falcon.” 

 

Sangamon County State’s Attorney John Milhiser says the arrest warrants are aimed at stopping the flow of drugs and guns in Springfield and Sangamon County.  The individuals are facing charges ranging from unlawful use of a weapon, to manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, to mob action. 

 

42 people were taken into custody Thursday, with police still attempting to serve an additional 30 arrest warrants on Friday.  City, county and state police and the U.S. Marshal’s office joined the state’s attorney’s office in the sweep.
