Eleven men are charged in a drug ring that police say delivered heroin from Chicago's West Side to buyers in DuPage County.

Miguel Fernandez, 23, was arrested after a two-month drug conspiracy investigation.

Authorities in DuPage County say Fernandez bought heroin on Chicago's West Side and delivered it to "numerous" west suburban residents, who would either use it or resell it.

Twenty-year-old Ivan Espinal was arrested with Fernandez. Their capture led to nine other arrests on various felony drug-related conspiracy or delivery charges.
