A driver who allegedly ran a stop sign in Springfield last week is now facing drug and weapons charges.
Illinois State Police say a District 9 trooper spotted the driver running that stop sign at State and Laurel last Wednesday afternoon and pulled him over. The trooper called for a Springfield Police canine unit… and the dog indicated the presence of drugs.
Consent was given for a search of the vehicle…and afterwards, police say the driver gave consent for a search of his home on South Spring.
Altogether, police say they recovered 10 pounds of cannabis, 8 cannabis plants, and a stolen handgun. 24-year-old Jeffrey Moss is facing multiple charges.
