Large Marijuana Bust Near La Salle

Posted by wlpo on November 24, 2010

A California man will likely spend his holiday at the La Salle County Jail.

Matthew Page was pulled over yesterday afternoon by a state trooper while driving east on Interstate 80 near La Salle.  He was initially stopped for a license plate issue but a K-9 soon arrived and searched his truck.  According to police, 35 pounds of cannabis was found in the bed of Page’s truck.

He was arrested for possession of more than 500 grams of cannabis with the intent to deliver.
