Sheriff: Targets Of Biggest Street Crime Sweep In Years Are ''Thugs,'' ''Gang Wannabes''


Sangamon County Sheriff Neil Williamson describes many of the suspects in this week’s drug and gun sweep as, quote, “thugs.” 

 

More than 70 indictments have been handed down on charges ranging from manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, to unlawful use of a weapon, to mob action. Williamson says many of the suspects are teenagers and gang members or “gang wannabes.”

 

City, county, state and federal authorities are all involved in the effort called “Operation Falcon.” Williamson says it’s the biggest push against street crime that he can recall in the last 15 or 20 years.
