Summer Camp

Apparently, even with weed legal in Illinois now, some traditions die hard. One of those is the use of harder drugs at the annual Summer Camp Music Festival in Chillicothe. Anticipating this, about 10 drug task forces and other law enforcement went to work undercover at the event on August 20th and 21st.

By the time the last notes faded, agents had arrested eight people and seized more than a thousand hits of LSD, 47 grams of exotic mushrooms, 27 grams of ketamine, 124 grams of ecstasy, 33 grams of cocaine and more than 82 hundred dollars in cash. The undercover detail resulted in five Class X felony arrests and one Class 1 felony arrest.
