DIRT Team Makes Cocaine, Weapons Bust
Thousands of dollars in drugs and weapons are off the streets after authorities bust a suspected drug dealer in Springfield.
Sangamon County's drug team, known as the DIRT Team, arrested 27-year-old Anthony Williams just before 4 p.m. Thursday.
Police said a search warrant as his apartment turned up 57 grams of suspected crack cocaine, 24 grams of suspected pot, two handguns, and more than $6,700.
The street value of the seized drugs is about $6,000.
Williams is charged with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a weapon by a felon, and possession of cannabis.
