Sneed hears a monumental seizure of marijuana — 16,000 pounds — was intercepted Tuesday evening by a Chicago Police Department/DEA strike force in the Chicago area.
Sneed has learned the huge pot shipment, shipped via Mexico through Texas, was seized the night before the Chicago City Council passed a controversial city ordinance decriminalizing small amounts of pot.
Sneed is told the cache of pot was part of an ongoing strike force investigation “and was designated to be taken to a warehouse in the greater metropolitan area when seized,” according to a police source.
No arrests were made. A press conference by the Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy and DEA officials is scheduled for Thursday morning.
