Four men, including a father and his two sons, were charged with trafficking heroin after police found about $700,000 worth of narcotics in their west suburban home, prosecutors said.

Homeland Security Investigations officers in Chicago were tipped off to an out-of-state currency seizure on July 23, and began surveillance on an Elgin home connected to the seizure, according to the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s office.

Prosecutors claim Orlando Pacheco-Ramos, Jose Hernandez, Andres Hernandez and Luis Hernandez conducted a narcotics transaction in Addison on July 24.

When police pulled over Pacheco-Ramos’ vehicle, they found seven kilograms of heroin with a street value of about $700,000, according to the state’s attorney’s office. A large amount of cash was also recovered from his home in the 400 block of Stevens Drive in Addison.

All four men were arrested and charged with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, a Class X felony, prosecutors said.

Luis Hernandez, 47, of the 200 block of Comstock Drive in Elgin, was ordered held on a $700,000 bond, the state’s attorney’s office said.

His sons, 27-year-old Jose and 24-year-old Andres Hernandez, both of the 0-14 block of Lynch Street in Elgin, were both ordered held on $1 million each, prosecutors said.

All three are scheduled to appear in court Aug. 25 before Judge John Kinsella.

Pacheco-Ramos, 28, was held on a $700,000 cash bond, according to the state’s attorney’s office. His next court date is scheduled for Aug. 18 before Judge Blanche Hill Fawell.

All four face 15 to 60 years in prison if convicted, prosecutors said.
