Four charged in large-scale drug raid

More than 100 grams each of heroin, cocaine and marijuana

WOODSTOCK – Four McHenry County residents were arrested over the weekend as part of a large-scale drug raid.

The McHenry County Sheriff's Office assisted the Department of Homeland Security in the raid that nabbed four and netted more than 100 grams each of heroin, cocaine and marijuana.

In total, authorities seized 120 grams of heroin, 251 grams of cocaine, 136 grams of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, a semi-automatic handgun, more than $28,000 and two vehicles, the sheriff's office said. The estimated street value of the drugs was more than $33,000.

Charged with criminal drug conspiracy were: Berta Luz Alferez De Linares, 38, of 7510 Birch St., Crystal Lake; Agustin Santana-Rubio, 22, and Antonio Santana-Becerra, 22, both of 3808 Anne St. in McHenry.

According to the criminal complaint filed in McHenry County, the three arranged to sell the heroin to an undercover officer.

Another man, 18-year-old Ruben Santana-Rubio, also of 3808 Anne St., was charged with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver. Court documents allege that he had more than 100 grams, but less than 400 grams, of cocaine. He also was charged with misdemeanor possession of a firearm and ammunition without a valid firearm owner's identification card.

All four were arrested June 13 and are scheduled to appear in court July 9.

The most serious charge against the group carries a sentencing range between six and 30 years in prison. There are eight Class X felonies between them.

All four remain in custody at the McHenry County Jail in lieu of bond amounts ranging from $150,000 to $250,000.
