50 People from ‘Secret’ Facebook Group Arrested by Chicago Police

After infiltrating a Facebook group involved in the sale of drugs and guns, the Chicago Police carried out a series of overnight raids that took place in the North, West, and South sides of Chicago. Out of the 50 suspects arrested, one was found to be a Chicago Public School teacher. In this ten-month operation, undercover officers were able to pose as contraband purchasers, ultimately resulting in the removal of 18 illegal guns from the street. Police estimate that many more secret and illegal Facebook groups are being used to make a profit from guns, drugs, and human trafficking.
