CHICAGO — Chicago Police made their largest heroin bust of the year late last week, seizing $1.5 million worth of the drug that was headed for street-gang sales on the North Side and in near west suburban Cicero, police announced Monday.

Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis said the seizure, which also included $5 million in cash, "dealt a huge blow" to the narcotics trade. Investigators said it's highly unusual to recover drugs and cash from drug sales in the same location.
