Drug tactical unit arrests two suspects in Belleville


The drug tactical unit of the Belleville Police and St. Clair County Sheriff’s Deparment was dispatched to a home near downtown where two suspects were arrested Monday morning.

Drug Tactical Unit Supervisor Lt. Kurt Eversman said that two men were taken into custody without incident after 8 a.m. at 705 N. Illinois St. Several armed officers were conducting a search of the residence. The unit’s green armored truck was parked in the front of the house, where traffic coming into downtown was briefly slowed Monday morning.

Eversman said charges against the two men are anticipated by Tuesday. Eversman would not comment further about the suspects or the search.
