Large Heroin Bust In Streator

Posted by wlpo on February 23, 2012

You’ve heard of drug houses, what about drug apartments?  Area drug cops think they found one in Streator.

While doing a search Wednesday at an apartment on Sterling Street, TRIDENT investigators say they found nearly 90 packages of heroin.  They say they found 25 packages in the apartment of Alexander King and 64 more packages in a commons area of the apartment complex.  King was arrested for two counts of unlawful possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.

He was just paroled from prison in December after a 2010 cocaine dealing conviction.  Officers believe King was providing heroin to numerous cities in the Illinois Valley.
