VIDEO: Illinois Heroin Raid Interrupted by Stream of Customers Knocking at Door
Knocks on the door repeatedly interrupted Illinois State Police during a heroin raid in Wood River. Ten people showed up looking to buy heroin with police in the house, police said.
It all began when an informant made an undercover heroin buy at the home according to court documents. That led to a search of the resident’s trash in the alley. Police found baggies with the corners missing: a clue consistent with heroin use/dealing, police told FOX 2. Small amounts of heroin are often packaged in baggies. Users cut the corners to get every bit of heroin inside and avoid losing any by emptying the baggie from the top.
Illinois State Police SWAT and undercover drug agents were there executing a search warrant after earlier finding those baggies.
The raid was repeatedly interrupted by the knocking at the door. Ten people came looking to buy heroin during in about a 90-minute period only to find undercover officers in their state police vests on the other side of the door.
