Leroy Grant, 38, is accused of both running drugs and selling weapons for a Chicago drug dealer. Grant reportedly told the drug dealer: “Money’s what … we here for!. And if it’s easy, it’s easy!”

Leroy Grant, 38, was arrested after he and the reserve officer transported fake cocaine last November for the drug dealer who was cooperating with federal agents. They picked up the drugs at a Home Depot.
