Lake County law-enforcement authorities say they will be offering $1,000 rewards for information leading to the arrest of anyone possessing or selling the party drug Ecstasy. The cash-rewards program was announced Sunday as a joint effort of the Lake County Sheriff's office, Crime Stoppers and the Metropolitan Enforcement Group.

Authorities say it is an attempt to curtail the use and sale of the drug during the warmer months, when school is winding down and proms take place. It's also when Ecstasy use typically increases.
