Three California men are being held on $1 million bond for allegedly hauling a ton of marijuana across Illinois.
And that's not a figure of speech. We mean an actual ton. Two, actually.
On Monday night, Illinois State Police stopped a semitrailer truck on Interstate 57 in Tuscola, a town about 30 miles south of Champaign.
A drug-sniffing dog found 4,400 pounds of cannabis tucked away among crates of vegetables.
That's over two tons! At that point, do you really need the dogs anymore?
A judge set bond at $1 million each on Tuesday. The men are due back in court on February 23.
Charges have not officially been filed yet, but Nolan says the trio will likely face cannabis trafficking, which carries a prison term of up to 60 years (given the size of their loot).
