TWO TRAFFIC STOPS IN MADISON COUNTY RESULT IN MORE THAN THREE MILLION DOLLARS IN POT SEZIED

The Illinois State Police seized more than 3.4 million dollars worth of cannabis during two different traffic stops recently.  The ISP just released details about the two traffic stops.  The first was in late August on I-70 near Troy.  A pick-up truck was stopped for improper lane usage and the trooper noticed suspicious behavior by the driver and called a k-9 unit.  Inside the truck, officers found 12 large duffle bags of marijuana allegedly containing 633 pounds of the substance.  The driver, 41 year-old Tomlin Coleman of Florida was arrested. 

The second traffic stop was in Marine September 24.  An SUV was stopped for an obstructed windshield and the trooper noticed the driver and passenger acting suspiciously and located two duffle bags allegedly containing around 110 pounds of marijuana.  41 year-old Keeta Buchana and 68 year-old James Quinn, both of Middleton, Ohio, where arrested.  The two stops were not related but demonstrate how much illegal drugs are being moved over our roads.  According to the Illinois State Police, the marijuana has a street value of more than 3.4 million dollars.
