Sangamon County’s DIRT team has been making a big mark in a short period of time.
Less than a month after the reconstituted drug enforcement team returned to the streets, it has racked up several big busts… including one Thursday at a home on Gaines Mill Road.
The sheriff’s office says a raid turned up 10 grams of crack cocaine, a scale, and $3,500 in cash.
25-year-old Donald Newton is facing drug charges.
Newton is on parole for a manslaughter charge and was wearing a state Department of Corrections monitoring bracelet when arrested.
