Home > Press Page

Wednesday, May 12, 2010— A three-month joint investigation by the Northfield Police Department and the 2nd District Cook County Sheriffs Police Gang Crimes/Narcotics Unit has broken up a drug selling operation in a local tavern.

An investigation of Seuls Tavern and Grill, 1735 Orchard Road, resulted in the arrest on Friday, May 7 of Jorge M. Garduno, 35, of 1133 Dodge, Evanston. Garduno, a Suels employee for about five years was arrested after undercover police made 10 controlled buys of cocaine from him over the course of 3 months, Northfield Chief of Police William Lustig said.

The probe was launched when Northfield police received anonymous tips from the community and other law enforcement agencies that drugs were being sold in the establishment The tavern operator said he was unaware of the sales, according to Lustig.

The chief quickly called in Sheriffs undercover Gang Crimes/Narcotics Investigators because of their experience and the fact they were unknown to the suspect. "Their cooperation in this investigation was the essential ingredient for the success of this operation," Lustig said. "Thanks to their involvement we can say that the message is clear: If you're going to sell drugs in Northfield, you will be caught. Time is on our side."

Bond was set at $100,000. Garduno is scheduled to appear in court, May, 20, 2010 at 5600 Old Orchard Road in Skokie.
