Urbana implements new procedure to catch drug dealers
The Urbana Police Division in Illinois has begun sending out patrol officers to make raids on drug tips rather than just its detectives, the Springfield News-Sun reported on April 3.
For instance, police officers raided the house of Urbana locals Steven Inskeep, 57, and Sonda Shafer, 48, wherein they found 20 marijuana plants. Additionally, their warehouse along U.S. Route 36 was raided, and 165 more marijuana plants were found.
A few days prior to this raid, police officers obtained a warrant to search the home of 43-year-old Christina McDonald, who lives at 112 1/3 E. Church Street, where they found prescription medicine and marijuana, as well as evidence relating to a different theft case, according to a statement signed by Urbana Police Chief Matt Lingrell.
