A 58-year-old Decatur man is in custody after authorities found a quarter-pound of cannabis in his car during a traffic stop on I-55 south of Springfield.
An Illinois State Police trooper stopped Clarence Barbee for an obstructed windshield. After pulling him over near the Carlinville exit, the trooper said that Barbee was acting suspiciously. He searched the vehicle and found four bags, reportedly containing pot, on Barbee. Numerous empty bags were found in the vehicle.
Barbee is facing charges including possession of cannabis with intent to deliver. He is being held on $40,000 bond.
