Rockford police bust man accused of selling heroin

Posted: Updated:

The Rockford Police Department's Narcotics Unit received tips about a man named Demario Ware delivering heroin in a car to people on Rockford's east side.

The Narcotics Unit worked with agents from the Drug Enforcement Agency to start an investigation.
On October, 1, 2013 investigators saw Ware in a car, along with three other people, in the 1600 block of S. Alpine Rd. selling drugs.

Shortly after, detectives tried to arrest Ware in the 1800 block of Remington Rd, but Ware and his front seat passenger, Marlon Pendelton, ran off in separate directions. The two men in the back seat did not flee and were arrested without incident. After a foot chase Ware and Pendelton were caught and arrested.

While searching the vehicle Ware was driving, detectives located numerous bags of heroin that were packaged for sale, cash, and a 9mm handgun.

Ware, who also had a valid Winnebago County warrant for his arrest for fleeing to elude, along with Pendelton, were lodged in the Winnebago County Jail. The other two men were released without charges.
