On Tuesday, Feb 2, McHenry County Sheriff’s Police seized 700 grams, or $25,000 worth of methamphetamine at an Algonquin home.

This was found to be unusual in the northwest part of Illinois, as the use methamphetamine is more common in the central and southern parts of the state. According to Illinois State Police Master Sergeant Bill Backus, “The greater Chicagoland area is still not seeing the prevalence in cases that we see in the southern and western part of the state…I have not seen or heard of any upswing of meth-related incidents…”

According to a 2007 Illinois Meth Project study, one in four teens in Springfield, Decatur, Champaign, and the surrounding areas said that locating meth is “very easy” or “somewhat easy.”
