Lindenhurst man among three nabbed outside Bolingbrook Promenade with $3M in heroin: police

BOLINGBROOK – Three men were arrested with $3 million worth of heroin Thursday outside the Bolingbrook Promenade, according to police.

A recent joint investigation by the Metropolitan Area Narcotics Squad and Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms had been targeting Uriel A. Quintana, according to MANS Director Mike Weber.

"We had information he was dealing heroin and were watching him around 5 p.m. when he met with two men in a blue Chevy Avalanche parked near the Bolingbrook Promenade," Weber said.

Quintana, 25, of the 300 block of South Thornwood Drive in Lindenhurst, got out of the Avalanche carrying a 60-quart cooler, which Weber said "struck [the agents watching] as unusual in the cold weather."

Quintana tried to run when agents moved in, but was grabbed quickly, authorities said. The cooler had three kilos of heroin inside, Weber said.

Two Joliet men were allegedly inside the Avalanche: Santiago Diaz, 39, of the 300 block of North Larkin Avenue, and Jesus M. Rodriguez, 35, of the 3000 block of Dan Ireland Drive. Both were taken into custody.

Weber said the vehicle will be seized.
