Traffic stops might seem fairly routine, but it is not uncommon for drivers to end up facing serious criminal charges. This was one Illinois man's recent experience when he was pulled over by police and then arrested for drug crimes. A judge set his bond at $50,000, although he would only need to come up with $5,000 in cash to secure his release. At last update he was still in police custody.
Illinois police recently arrested two people during the course of an investigation. The pair are both charged with drug crimes for unlawfully possessing methamphetamine and unlawfully possessing drug paraphernalia. One of the two -- a man -- had one other warrant out for his arrest at the time, and was also taken in for violating his probation.
Police in Illinois recently arrested three out-of-state men for allegedly engaging in drug-related activities. All three men are facing multiple charges related to weapons and drug crimes. At least one of the charges is a class X for possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver. This type of felony is the most serious offense in the state of Illinois.
