Six persons were arrested by Evanston police and charged with drug violations that involved additional arrests by police in Chicago and several neighboring suburbs, according to Cmdr. Joseph Dugan of the EPD.

A complete news release is awaiting an agreement among the participating departments, Dugan said, but today’s daily crime report lists the names of the Evanston six who were arrested over a four-day period last week.
