I-Bonds for 25 Kilos?
- Law enforcement officials in Chicago are incensed that three men charged with having millions of dollars in heroin and cash were released by a Cook County judge. Now, those men have now disappeared.
With nothing more than a promise, the three drug suspects - all Mexican nationals - were allowed to go free in a case that has riled law enforcement.
Investigators say the men are not just street dealers. They tell the I-Team that at least two of three have connections to a Mexican drug cartel and should have faced high bonds. Instead, they are free on I-Bonds and are now fugitives.
[...]Cook County Judge Maria Kuriakis Ciesel ruled against prosecutors and gave the men I-bonds; the judge questioning the legality of the apartment search.
$900,000 in cash and 25 kilos? We imagine that there are a few people looking for these guys and when located, will deal with them a bit more harshly than the Cook County "justice" system.
