After receiving the tip, McHenry County Sheriff's deputies conducted surveillance in the area. As a result, deputies observed a drug transaction on Tuesday, Nov. 6, and pulled over a blue, 2006 Chevrolet Canyon at Hilltop Road and Seminole Drive, according to McHenry County Sheriff Keith Nygren.

The sheriff estimates the street value of the narcotics seized was worth approximately $1,360.
