ISP ARRESTS TWO AND SEIZES OVER 110 POUNDS OF SUSPECTED COCAINE

A traffic stop made by an Illinois State Police (ISP) Trooper yesterday has resulted in two arrests and the seizure of suspected cocaine weighing more than 110 pounds.

On February 21, 2019 an ISP Trooper from the Statewide Criminal Patrol Team stopped a truck tractor-semi trailer combination Northbound on I-55 near Towanda, IL to conduct a Motor Carrier Safety Inspection. During the inspection the Trooper observed indicators of possible criminal activity. A State Police canine alerted to the odor of illegal drugs within the semi-trailer.

A subsequent search of the trailer by Illinois State Troopers and McLean County Deputies resulted in the seizure of fifty (50) kilograms of cocaine hidden within the legitimate freight inside the trailer.

Arrested for Controlled Substance Trafficking, Delivery of a Controlled Substance, and Possession of a Controlled Substance were Brandon R. Weise, 35, of Murrieta, California and Miguel Martinez, 36, of Desert Springs, California. Both subjects have been incarcerated in the McLean County Jail and have been formally charged by the McLean County State’s Attorney. A McLean County Judge has set their bond at $500,000 cash.

No additional information will be released regarding this incident.

The public is reminded that criminal defendants are presumed innocent until the government is able to prove its charges in a court beyond a reasonable doubt.

Rockford Scanner™: Strong Winds, Icy Roadways Expected This Evening Once Again

Police are saying: As the temperatures plunge with the windchill this afternoon, rain that has already fallen will start to refreeze on the roadways this afternoon and evening. Travel will become extremely difficult especially on the County’s Secondary Roads. Please refrain from travel unless it’s absolutely necessary as First Responders are having trouble traveling on the ice covered roadways.

From the NWS:

A robust cold front crossing the area mid to late-afternoon will usher in gusty winds and rapidly falling temperatures this evening. West winds will gusty to 45-50 mph late this afternoon and evening. Power outages will be possible, especially where recent freezing rain has left a coating of ice on trees and power-lines. A rapid drop in temperatures behind the front will result in the potential for flash freezing of standing water and wet surfaces this evening.

Exercise extra caution if traveling this evening, including during the commute, by being alert for rapidly changing road conditions and strong cross-winds on north-south roadways.

On January 31, 2019, Boone County Sheriff’s Detectives arrested a Belvidere man on multiple child sex offenses.

Juan Garcia, 43 years old of Belvidere, was charged with one count of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse (Class 2 Felony). Garcia remains in Boone County Jail on a $500,000.00 (10%) bond.

The arrest of Garcia came after it was reported he had sexually abused a child under the age of 17. The investigation continues and additional charges are forthcoming. A class 2 felony is punishable by three (3) to seven (7) years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

The Boone County Sheriff’s Office encourages anyone having information on a crime or narcotic trafficking to call the Boone County Sheriff’s Office at 815-544-2144 or Crime Stoppers at 815-547-7867.

Members of the public are reminded that these are only charges and are not proof of the defendant’s guilt. Every defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the State’s burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
