Police say man fled during traffic stop

Posted by wlpo on January 20, 2011

A simple traffic stop for speeding turned into a search complete with police dogs.

A state trooper stopped 34 year old Andrew Huffman on Interstate 80 near La Salle Wednesday night for speeding.  But they say Huffman took off.  Officers from La Salle, Utica and the Illinois Conservation Police searched the area near Conway and J-C Whitney looking for Huffman.  He was found about 30 minutes later.

Police say he admitted that 12 pounds of marijuana found in the car trunk was his.

He was taken to the La Salle County Jail for cannabis trafficking, obstructing justice, possession of a cannabis plant and other tickets.
