Good job, Elgin police

After 13 months of investigation and undercover work, police on Thursday began rounding up 85 street and midlevel drug dealers — a move authorities say will help reduce crime throughout the city this summer...

However, many of those targeted were not found in the initial sweep.

"You hope for the best" on the first day, Theriault said, adding that more people likely will be picked up today and in the coming days.

"As word gets out, they will disperse around the area," making them more difficult to find, Theriault said. (source: Elgin Courier 4/21/06)

Glad to hear they're hard at work. The only thing I had to wonder about was why the Courier reported this before they'd finished rounding everybody up. Heads up, guys, the cops are coming!
