Siblings Busted Selling Heroin In Naperville

CHICAGO (WBBM) – A Chicago brother and sister have been arrested for heroin trafficking in the suburbs.

LISTEN: Newsradio 780’s Jan Coleman Reports

Suburban residents sometimes travel to the inner city to buy drugs, but Naperville police said a young Chicago brother and sister traveled to the suburbs to sell heroin to customers.

Jermaine Moore, 19, is charged with delivery of a controlled substance. He is being held at the DuPage County jail. His sister, Kymtika Moore, 21, bonded out of jail and is charged with possession. Police said she chauffeured her brother many times to meet up with buyers.

When the duo was arrested Thursday at a parking lot near Route 59 and McDowell Road on Naperville’s north side, police said the siblings had $4,000 worth of heroin with them. The arrests conclude a month-long investigation into heroin sales in and around Naperville.

    well done, kudos to Naperville PD for publicly addressing a very significant problem….it’s the tip of the iceberg. Chicago street gangs have been quietly infiltrating suburban Cook and DuPage Counties with illicit street drugs, particularly heroin.

      and whos buying it??? duh your children with your money!

      • Nathan

        Whats your point??? Street cop was just pointing out that it is a very significant problem and giving credit to Naperville Pd for being proactive.

    • Nathan

      Very true heroin has quietly infiltrated into the suburbs and is all over in suburban high schools. I truly don’t think people realize how bad it is. Good job Naperville Pd!!

    morons, go back to chighetto


    The street monkies serve no benefit to America.

    This nineteen year old was in Naperville with his heroin because:

    1. The demand for heroin in Dupage County has sky-rocketed over the last two decades.

    2. A nineteen year old with $4,000 proves to me that he’s a small part of a larger ring.

    3. Even if he did finish high school, he probably had no hope of ever going to college.

    4. He’s probably the bread winner in his family.

    hey vetus…who cares. Glad these two are off the streets.

    I’m beginning to think that colored people have a genetic predisposition to drugs and alcohol.

    • Vetus

      African-Americans don’t have drug and alcohol problems, it’s a White-American issue.

  • bob

    hamilton… are a moron

    I read an article from the federal narc bureau which states Chicago`s heroin use far exceeds any other big city in America.Wow I hope that`s not true!

  • Rev. K Wwaley

    Drugs are just another weapon useed to destoy the lives of African americans in some of our neighbor hoods you can buy drugs or alcohol faster than a good cut of quality beef . Drugs have now made its way to white america now its a problem . Poor and middle class white people are not to much better off than African americans , rather than seperate your selfs lets work together and bring the real drug dealers to justice the rich white people who make billions selling dope.

    Great job NPD. I know people in Naperville have a hard time admitting there is a drug problem but I know first hand. My son died from a heroin overdose while we lived in Naperville. I’m glad this is getting out in the open and more people will chose to concentrate on finding a solution rather than sweep the problem under the rug. We are a middle class white family. Drugs touch everyone. It is not a racial or socioeconomic thing.
