The charges stem from selling weapons or narcotics on 17 different occasions during undercover operations, according to authorities. Several of the transactions took place near schools, churches or parks resulting in Class X felonies, authorities said.

Orlando Rocha, 26, of the 1300 block of Monomoy Street, was arrested July 5 during a traffic stop in Henry County.

Kyle Ivanov, 19, of the 200 block of Linn Court, was arrested Wednesday morning at his home.

Rocha was charged with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a park, and two counts unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. He remains in Henry County jail.

Ivanov was charged with two counts of unlawful sale of firearms and was expected in court Wednesday afternoon. He was also wanted on outstanding warrants from the Illinois Department of Corrections and by Kendall County sheriff's office.

The investigation resulted in charges for 12 gang members that netted 204 grams of cocaine and 4.3 grams of heroin, police said.
