- Chicago police seized marijuana valued at over $1 million after stopping an East Garfield Park man in his car Saturday evening on the Northwest Side, authorities said.
Officers tried to stop James Hargrett in the Galewood neighborhood around 7:15 p.m. after seeing him fail to use a turn signal after exiting an alley in the 1700 block of North Moody Avenue, according to a police report.
But Hargrett, 37, continued north on Moody, blew another stop sign and again failed to use his turn signal before he jumped out of the 2007 GM Denali and ran off, with the car still in reverse. An officer got in the vehicle and placed it in park, according to an arrest report. It was then that he noticed several garbage bags behind the front seats.
Soon after, officers apprehended Hargrett when they noticed him hiding under a porch in the 1800 block of North Mobile Avenue.
You know, if these assholes learned to drive properly, dope seizures might go way down.
