The Illinois State Police (ISP) announced a large seizure of cannabis with an estimated street value of $9,389,366.44. Four individuals were taken into custody and charged.

On February 3, 2010, the Illinois State Police Narcotics Interdiction Unit (NARCINT) seized 117 bundles of cannabis that was being transported to the Chicago area in a truck tractor semi-trailer. The seizure was the result of an ongoing investigation, observations, and continued efforts of the NARCINT unit.

The investigation led NARCINT Agents to a warehouse in Franklin Park, Illinois, where they approached and conducted a consensual encounter with the subjects from the truck tractor semi-trailer, a passenger vehicle, and the warehouse. The encounter led to admissions of involvement in the delivery of a cannabis load to the warehouse. A consent search of the truck resulted in the discovery of the cannabis, weighing 3,450 pounds, among a load of citrus. The four subjects, who refused to cooperate further, were identified as:

  • Jose Luis Jimenez, age 45, Chicago, Illinois
  • Jose Garcia-Cavazos, age 28, Mission, Texas
  • Raquel Sanchez, age 31, Mission, Texas
  • Albertico Rosaldo DeJesus, age 31, Veracruz, Mexico

All four individuals were charged with Narcotics Trafficking, a Class X Felony. The subjects were transported to the Cook County Jail for processing and to await a bond hearing. The Cook County State’s Attorney Office is prosecuting the case. The public is reminded that an individual is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
