Large Pot Bust On I-39

Posted by wlpo on January 26, 2011

Two Californians were arrested last week for allegedly hauling drugs through the Illinois Valley.

A state trooper pulled over a semi as it exited onto Interstate 39 from Interstate 80.  The Utica drug dog came to the scene and gave a positive alert of drugs according to police.  Troopers searched the front of the trailer and allegedly found a false compartment with 305 packages of cannabis weighing 372 pounds.

Rigoberto Galeano and Ricardo Posas were both arrested for possession with intent to deliver over five thousand grams of cannabis.  Both men were taken to the county jail.
