- A man was arrested in Englewood Friday after police found him in possession of 23 pounds of cannabis during a traffic stop.
Police stopped Alexander Brown, 39, at a traffic stop at approximately 7:45 p.m. Friday and arrested him. Brown is charged with one felony count of cannabis possession and one traffic citation.
Englewood District officers stopped Brown in the 1000 block of West Marquette Road after observing a minor traffic violation. Officers found a large clear plastic bag containing cannabis coming out of a black book bag in the rear seat.
Brown was immediately taken into custody. Police also found another bag containing cannabis, resulting in more than 23 pounds recovered at an estimated street value of $64,000.
Sure, the Vice unit gets a ton or more occasionally, but it still feels good to get a something that won't fit into the dope safe in the District sometimes. Nice pinch Officers.
