A 33-year-old Chicago man was charged Monday evening with multiple drug- and weapons-related crimes, according to an EPD news release.

Along with officers from the Cook County Sheriff’s Police North Gang Unit, EPD officers executed a search warrant in the 1400 block of Juneway Terrace after receiving a tip regarding the sale of heroin to Evanston residents in the area.
