Nikkolas Casillo, 28, formerly of Wilmette and now living in Chicago, is accused of supplying the drugs to lower-level dealers in Chicago and the North Shore, the article says. He is charged with a number of felonies related to selling heroin.

James Findlay, 23, of Glencoe, and Taylor Appelbaum, 23, of Evanston, were also charged. Findlay faces felony charges for heroin sale and Appelbaum, who was driving the car that Findlay was in when arrested, was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance.
