WHEATON, Ill. (AP) — DuPage County prosecutors say four men have been charged with heroin trafficking as part of a multiagency investigation targeting sales of the drug.

Officials said Friday that 27-year-old Jose Hernandez, 47-year-old Luis Hernandez and 24-year-old Andres Hernandez are being held on drug trafficking charges. Bond was set at $1 million for Jose and Andres Hernandez and $700,000 for Luis Hernandez. All are from Elgin.

Authorities say Luis Hernandez is the father of Jose and Andres Hernandez.

A fourth man, 28-year-old Orlando Pacheco-Ramos of Addison, appeared in court last week. He's being held on $700,000 full cash bond on drug and traffic charges.
