Aurora Becomes Drug Free
Three men were arrested and 48 kilograms of marijuana were
confiscated yesterday in Aurora, a town in the western suburbs
of Chicago. The men were captured following a sting operation involving
an undercover purchase of 100 pounds of pot. From the Trib article linked
above: "Police said they long ago placed the home on 6th Avenue under surveillance based on tips from citizens.
When that produced no results, they staged the undercover buy, they said."
This latest triumph in the War on Drugs, when combined with the
half-ton haul of cocaine in September, undoubtedly has rendered
Aurora drug-free, probably for all time.
