Deputies seized more than $2 million worth of oil and wax containing THC, the psychoactive chemical found in marijuana, after making three arrests this weekend, according to a news release from the Will County sheriff’s office.
On Friday, deputies arrested 32-year-old Aubrey Honeycutt of Thompsonville, Michigan, on probable cause of manufacture or delivery of marijuana and possession of marijuana.
Deputies said they found nine vacuum-sealed bags containing 20,989.4 grams of THC wax and one vacuum-sealed bag containing 10 marijuana joints in a duffle bag stored in Honeycutt’s car.
Honeycutt also had three THC cartridges, two THC vape pens and two grams of marijuana, police said. She was pulled over by deputies and during the traffic stop a police dog named Malice “positively alerted to the vehicle,” according to the release.
While deputies were searching Honeycutt’s car, they noticed another car “driving erratically” and arrested the driver, Taleesun Luckett-Baker, 24, of Cave Junction, Oregon, according to the release. After speaking with Luckett-Baker, deputies determined he was involved with Honeycutt’s transportation of marijuana, according to the release.
On Saturday, deputies arrested 21-year-old Ali Alkhreisha of Bellflower, California, on charges of marijuana trafficking, manufacture or delivery of marijuana and possession of marijuana.
After deputies pulled Alkhreisha over on Houbolt Road outside Joliet, they found cardboard boxes containing 31 mason jars with about 48,732 grams of THC oil, according to the release, along with 47 grams of marijuana and a THC vape pen.
