Edwards arrested for cocaine delivery

On June 25 at about 4:32 p.m., the Streator Police assisted the Tri-County Drug Enforcement Narcotics Team (Tri-DENT) with an arrest of Davon A. Edwards, 23, of 1140 N. Lavergne Ave. in Chicago on a LaSalle County arrest warrant for three counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance (cocaine), a Class 2 felony.

The arrest warrant was obtained with the assistance of the LaSalle County State’s Attorney’s Office after a Tri-DENT investigation of cocaine sales in Streator. During the investigation, Edwards delivered, on three occasions, crack cocaine to Tri-DENT in multiple areas in Streator.

Edwards was transported to the LaSalle County Jail where he will be held on a bond of $500,000 (10 percent).

Tri-DENT consists of LaSalle, Streator, Princeton, Oglesby and Mendota Police departments along with LaSalle, Bureau and Putnam County Sheriff’s offices.
