Investigation led to two arrests

by John Etheredge


Montgomery Police Chief Daniel Meyers and the village police department received some public praise during a village board meeting Monday evening for their recent work involving an investigation of criminal activity at a local business.

Village President Matt Brolley read a letter to the board dated Feb. 3 that he received from Bob McGuigan, president of Performance Food Service--Fox River (PFS) on Baseline Road in the village.

In his letter, McGuigan said he wished to recognize Meyers "for extraordinary community support and for being amazingly proactive" in helping his firm deal with a problem at his business that was first brought to his attention several weeks ago.

McGuigan noted that Meyers coordinated an effort involving village police, other law enforcement agencies and PFS--Fox River's loss prevention department "to help bring down a theft and drug ring that was operating on the third shift in our warehouse."

Referring to Meyers, McGuigan wrote, "Directly because of his efforts and those who report to him, we were able to terminate 15 employees who were involved in theft or drug use/trafficking or both. At least two of those individuals were arrested and are facing criminal charges."

He added, "Performance Foodservice-Fox River is a more wholesome and safer place to work today because of the actions of the Montgomery Police Department."

McGuigan concluded, "Having worked and lived in seven states over the past 30 years, I have had the pleasure to work hand-in-hand with community leaders and police departments in every place I have lived. I must say, I have never seen a police department under more solid leadership than the Montgomery Police Department. They are a very professional department committed to community service and one that we can all be very proud of."

Assisting Montgomery Police in the investigation were K-9 officers from the Illinois State Police along with personnel from the Kane County Sheriff's Office, Kendall County Sheriff's Office and the Plainfield Police Department.

Board member applauded Meyers and the department after Brolley finished reading the letter.
