Terry Lemming, director of Lake County MEG, and Rose said the investigation isn't over, and more arrests are likely.

...

"If this had been a disease, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would have been out in force," said Terry Lemming, director of the Lake County Metropolitan Enforcement Group. Though not classified as a disease, use of ecstasy has been found to be dangerous, and sometimes deadly. Efforts to keep ecstasy out of the county, and to increase awareness of parents, schools and youth about the presence and dangers of the drug, have been led by the Metropolitan Enforcement Group, which includes undercover officers from 28 law enforcement agencies. Officers run sting operations to catch ecstasy dealers, make presentations at schools and provide information on the group's Web site www.lakecountymeg.org. "We at LCMEG decided to do something more because this ecstasy problem is so bad," Lemming said. The problem went from 0 to 60 in four years. Last year, Lemming's group made about 60 arrests involving ecstasy. He anticipates that the popularity of the drug will continue to grow.
...
About 90 percent of the ecstasy distributed in the United States comes from Europe, said Lemming.
...
"It's a new drug and we're still learning how to fight it," Lemming said.
...
No deaths have been attributed to ecstasy use in Lake County, but Lemming said there have been deaths from the drug in McHenry and DuPage counties.
...
"It's a lot worse than we think right now," Lemming said.
...
Terry Lemming, director of the Lake County Metropolitan Enforcement Group, said a tip from a citizen led police to get a search warrant for McKown's home. Metropolitan Enforcement Group agents arrived at the house about 9 p.m. Tuesday, Lemming said, and discovered the marijuana plants and mushrooms containing the drug psilocybin in the basement.
...
Lemming said the cash was confiscated because it is believed to be profits from drug sales.
...
Terry Lemming, director of the Lake County office of the Metropolitan Enforcement Group, and Master Sgt.
...
Undercover officers from Lemming's group arrested two people accused of selling these drugs at a Memorial Day weekend "rave" party in Antioch.
...
Rave promoters bill the parties as "alcohol free," lulling parents into thinking they are safe for teens to attend, Lemming said. "They usually are alcohol free," he said.
...
Terry Lemming director of the Lake County Metropolitan Enforcement Group, said more than 3,000 doses of the drug were confiscated from the group's hotel room in Gurnee.
...
Lemming said Rusty Burgess, 27, of Blacksburg, S.C., and Vichitra Prasongphine, 24, of Kings Mountain, N.C., are charged with drug possession and armed violence after both were caught with loaded handguns.
...
John Travis Queen, 24, of Kings Mountain, N.C., was charged with drug possession and Kimberly Bridges, 19, of Shelby, N.C., was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana, Lemming said.
...
MEG agents met with Burgess and Queen in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant near Gurnee Mills around 8 p.m. Friday to buy the drug in a sale they had prearranged through phone calls, Lemming said.
...
Both were taken into custody before the transaction was completed, Lemming said, in part because Burgess made it known to the under cover agents be was armed.
...
Agents then secured a search warrant for their rooms at the Holiday Inn at 6100 Grand Ave., Lemming said, and discovered the drugs in several plastic bags and Prasongphine in possession of another gun.
...
MEG Director Terry Lemming said the profit is high in selling club drugs and the four suspects were probably in the area because they can get more money for the drug than if they sold it in the Carolinas. "They wouldn't tell us why they were here," he said.
...
During the search of the home on Chinook Road, officers found four firearms: a sawed-off shotgun, an assault rifle, a rifle and a pistol described as a "Saturday night special," said Terry Lemming of the Lake County MEG.
...
There may be others as evidence is developed, Lemming said. Criminal charges are pending.
