Berwyn PD Assists FBI in West Side Drug Sting:
As part of an FBI taskforce, the Berwyn Police Department assisted federal authorities in the arrest of 14 subjects who were involved in a drug trafficking organization that distributed fentanyl, MDMA, cocaine and heroin on the West Side of Chicago. The investigation, which began in 2017, culminated Wednesday with the seizure of nearly $60,000 in cash and 12 recovered firearms.
Of the 14 subjects who were charged, Johnathan Reyna, 25, of Berwyn, and Marco Mendoza, 24, of Lyons, ran the drug trafficking organization out of a body shop on the 3300 block of West Cermak Road in Chicago.
Nine of the subjects involved have been scheduled for detention hearings on April 24th, and the remaining five have been charged by the state and will appear in Cook County Criminal Court.
