In 1999 The United States Attorney's Office in Peoria, Illinois formed the nucleus of a task force known as Operation Crackshot. This Midwest OCDETF operation resulted in the conviction and/or cooperation of over 70 individuals connected with gangs trafficking crack cocaine and victimizing the public housing projects of Peoria, Illinois. The combined investigative expertise and resources of the Springfield and Chicago FBI, ATF, DEA, IRS, U.S. Marshals Service, Illinois State Police, Peoria County Sheriff, and City of Peoria Police, was focused on two large Chicago-based drug trafficking organizations, the "Gangster Disciples" and the "Vice Lords".
