Illinois Police Bust Drug Dealer During Traffic Stop

This drug dealer in Illinois was making a delivery in the middle of the night. Okay, that seems like a smart idea. That's where it ends. He was speeding through a construction zone. That just says, pull me over now. Well, that is exactly what the police in Marion did. So this genius is from Mississippi. He also has out-of-state license plates and gets pulled over. This rarely works out well.

When the officers approached the vehicle, the pair couldn't help but notice three massive clear garbage bags in the backseat of the vehicle. They were stuffed with weed. In fact, it was just under 83 pounds of pot. Sorry, he can't use its legal in Illinois excuse because that amount is way above the approved amount for individuals. If he would have just driven the speed limit, the suspect would be a free man counting his money right now.
