Chicago Police seized nearly 350 pounds of marijuana Saturday during a home search on the city’s South Side.
A 22-year-old man was arrested and charged with one count of felony cannabis possession in the bust.
Police said Deering District tactical officers conducted an investigatory traffic stop Jan. 14 in the 4300 block of South Princeton Avenue, which led to the recovery of nearly two pounds of cannabis.
An investigation led officers to develop information about a “large cache of narcotics” being stored at a residence in the 3600 block of West 82nd Place.
Search and surveillance led to the recovery of approximately 350 pounds of marijuana Saturday. Police estimate the total street value at $1 million.
Miguel Briseno, 22, faces felony drug possession charges in connection to the incident and is expected to appear in bond court Sunday.
