HUNTLEY, Ill. -- A major drug operation is busted in far northwest suburban Huntley and authorities say it was a family affair.
The McHenry County Sheriff's Office led the 8-month investigation and executed a search warrant at a house in the 9600 block of Bennington Drive in Huntley Tuesday morning.
Authorities confiscated nearly 300 pounds of marijuana, 60 pills of MDMA or Molly, hundreds of prescription painkillers, and 25 grams of cocaine, with a total estimated street value of $700,000. Investigators also seized 5 automobiles, including a luxury model and a collector's model, and several thousand dollars in cash.
Nicholas Domino, 45, is facing a slew of felony charges for the manufacture, delivery, and possession of illegal drugs. A judge set Domino's bond at $1 million.
"A major drug supplier with far-reaching ties, particularly in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin, has been apprehended," said Sheriff Bill Prim, in a press release.
Domino's wife, Rocio, 37, is also charged. Her bond was set at $300,000. Angelo Aranda, 20, Adam Domino, 24, and Leeann Nevens, 19, are facing lesser charges and were released after posting bond.
Authorities say they expect to execute search warrants at other residences owned by Nicholas Domino while the investigation continues.
