Pot Bust Near Peru

Posted by wlpo on January 31, 2011

Two out of state men are the latest to be arrested for drugs on Interstate 80 in the area.

A trooper stopped Stephen Burgess of New Jersey Saturday afternoon for following too closely.  The Utica K-9 was called to the scene and the trooper allegedly found two plastic tubs full of cannabis in Burgess’ trunk.  Total weight of the pot is five pounds.

Burgess and his passenger Scott Burgess of California were arrested for possession with intent to deliver cannabis.  Both guys were taken to the county jail.

The traffic stop happened on east bound I-80 just a mile west of Peru.
