[ARCHIVED] 2019 Summer Camp Arrests

Multi-County Narcotics Enforcement Group (PMEG) announced the results of their drug enforcement activities at this year's 2019 Summer Camp Festival in Chillicothe, IL. PMEG has had a presence at the festival for the past several years in an effort to curtail the distribution of illegal narcotics and ensure the safety of the attendees. The unit used its own personnel and some agents from other units in the State, along with the Illinois State Police SWAT Team.

Eleven felony arrests were made at the festival, with three of those being Class X felonies. Agents seized amounts of cannabis, cocaine, ecstasy ketamine, LSD, and psilocybin mushrooms, along with approximately $5500 in United States currency.

Questions should be directed to Director Dave Briggs at (309) 208-2737.
