A young Chicago man has been sentenced to six years in prison for selling narcotics two years ago to undercover Naperville police.
Jermaine N. Moore, 21, will begin serving the prison term on June 17, said Paul Darrah, spokesman for DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin.
Moore on Monday was found guilty of a Class 1 felony charge of the manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance, Darrah said. DuPage County Circuit Court Judge John J. Kinsella convicted Moore and imposed his sentence.
Naperville police arrested Moore and his sister, Kymtika D. Moore, the afternoon of Feb. 10, 2011. The arrest occurred in the parking lot of a strip mall near McDowell Road and Route 59 on the city’s far northwest side.
Police Cmdr. Gregg Waitkus in 2011 said the arrests were made by members of the department’s special operations group, and “ended a month-long investigation into a subject selling heroin in and around Naperville.”
Jermaine Moore was identified as the seller in question. Waitkus said he was arrested “after he brought approximately 20 grams of heroin with an estimated street value of $4,000 to sell in Naperville.”
Kymtika Moore drove her brother to and from the drug sale locations. Kinsella in December 2011 sentenced her to four days in DuPage County Jail on a charge of unlawful possession of less than 15 grams of cocaine.
She was also ordered her to serve 15 days in the Sheriff’s Work Alternative Program, or SWAP. Kinsella also placed her on two years of probation and assessed fines and legal costs totaling $1,370.
