Police say an undercover investigation has led to the arrest of a south Evanston man on drug charges.

Commander Tom Guenther says surveillance work by the Neighborhood Enforcement Team of an open air street-level drug market operating in the 300 block of Sherman Avenue led to the arrest of James Roosevelt Buck, 24, of 317 Sherman, on charges of unlawful possession of 16 grams of marijuana.

Guenther says detectives saw numerous people entering and leaving the building and other suspicious activities that led to the issuance of a search warrant. While executing that warrant, Guenther says, officers discovered the drugs that led to Buck’s arrest.

Buck is scheduled to appear in Skokie district court on July 7.
