Man Allegedly Busted with Hundreds of Pounds of Pot Pleads Not Guilty

Posted by wlpo on November 4, 2016

It’s not often you hear about someone driving around hundreds of pounds of pot, but a California man is facing that allegation in LaSalle County.

The attorney for Lehel Garami pled “not guilty” in court yesterday to the one count of possession of cannabis with intent to deliver. According to police, the 57-year old Garami was busted with more than 500 pounds of marijuana in his vehicle.

Because of the amount, he faces between 6 and 30 years in prison if convicted. He remains in the LaSalle County Jail needing $100,000 to be released from custody.
