Two Alleged Heroin Dealers Indicted for Drugs and Gun

Posted by wlpo on August 11, 2016

If you get caught allegedly trying to sell heroin in the Illinois Valley you’d better have six-figures in the bank or you’ll be in jail for a while.

That’s the case for 21-year old Rashad Anchando from Streator and 20-year old Romeo Blackman from Chicago. A grand jury has indicted the two for unlawful possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver, as well as unlawful possession of a stolen firearm.

The two were busted by Tri-DENT drug agents last Friday in Anchando’s Streator home. Police say they found 9 grams of heroin on Blackman, 41 baggies of heroin in the home, and a loaded handgun that had been reported stolen from Mississippi.

They were taken to the county jail in Ottawa where they would each need $100,000 cash to be released.
