Drug dealer arrested in Bolingbrook

BOLINGBROOK – Police say a second dealer brought heroin from Chicago to undercover officers this week.

Calvin Jeffers, 37, was arrested about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday after meeting with Metropolitan Area Narcotics Squad agents in a parking lot to sell 10 grams of heroin, according to MANS Director Mike Weber.

Weber said the case against Jeffers is not related to Monday’s arrest of Darrel A. Wilson, 28, who allegedly brought 14 grams of heroin to an undercover officer.

“But there are similarities. Both men would obtain the drug on the west side of Chicago and bring it to the Bolingbrook area to sell here,” Weber said.

Jeffers, of the 300 block of South Kilbourn Avenue in Chicago, was booked into the Will County jail on a charge of delivery of drugs. According to reports, he is an admitted member of the Gangster Disciples street gang.

Wilson, of the 7400 block of South Eggleston Avenue in Chicago, has been jailed on a charge of drug trafficking. He has been on parole since February from a six-year sentence for auto theft and has four previous narcotics convictions in the last 10 years.
