Sterling, Illinois Police visited eleven homes Thursday, August 30, 2012 after suspect drug activity was reported at those homes.

“Citizens often contact the Sterling Police Department about possible drug activity and these reports are documented and action is taken for the ones supplying information that can be acted upon,” said Detective Sgt. Steven Hubbard.

Most of the complaints involve a large amount of vehicle or pedestrian traffic at the suspected houses. 

Police said they made the August 30th “house calls” to let occupants of the eleven homes know police will be paying special attention to their location.  Police also hand-delivered written notice of the extra attention being paid to their address.

People who report suspicious houses are not identified. 

Sterling Police plan to continue to make these “house calls” in the future.

Anyone with information about possible criminal activity should contact their local police department.
