Crackhouse USA

CRIME AND INVESTIGATION – Wednesday 28 March, 9.30pm

Follow the shocking true stories of a gang of drug dealers, the feds who set them up, the wiretap that caught them and the devastated lives they left behind. Between 2001 and 2005, Darrell “Duck” Davis recruited a crew of young men to help him take over the drug trade in Rockford, Illinois. Operating a dozen crack and heroin houses, they sold a pound of heroin and almost the same amount of crack every week, making approximately $5,000 a day. They fought gun battles with rival drug gangs in the open on quiet residential streets. They terrorised the neighbourhoods they inhabited and intimidated witnesses. But when the Rockford Sheriff’s Department asks the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for help, a task force moves in and begins to turn the tables on the violent criminals.
