The DuPage County Metropolitan Enforcement Group, Bensenville Police Department and the DuPage County State's Attorney's Office coordinated the investigation. Agents conducted a series of undercover purchases of heroin during the operation. A total of 489 packets of heroin was purchased, authorities said.

Davis, Weems and Ellis were eventually arrested at a location on the 1100 block of South York Road in Bensenville. All three are currently housed at the DuPage County Jail with $150,000 bonds.

The Bensenville arrests follow a heroin bust in Antioch earlier this week that resulted in two arrests and the recent seizure of 20 kilograms of heroin and more than $1 million during a federal investigation that lead to a Des Plaines home.
