Over 27 pounds of pot confiscated after traffic stop on I-80

Posted by wlpo on September 17, 2015

Two men from opposite ends of the country are accused of hauling a lot of pot through the Illinois Valley.

Andrew Pulliam of Oregon and James Hutchinson of Massachusetts were pulled over last week near the La Salle-Bureau County border on Interstate 80 for allegedly speeding. A drug dog showed up to the scene and according to police, led them to finding 27 pounds of marijuana.

Pulliam and Hutchinson were arrested for unlawful possession of cannabis with the intent to deliver. They were taken to the Bureau County Jail.
