(RENSSELAER) - A swerving Cadillac lead Lake County Police to 110 pounds of marijuana.
Police arrested the driver Thursday after finding the drugs inside a gym bag in the back of his car.
Investigators say 23-year-old Javier Carrera, of Forest Park, IL., was stopped after an officer noticed he'd passed several vehicles on 1-65 South near Rensselaer.
When Carrera was pulled over, he reportedly looked suspicious.
That's what made the officer check out his trunk. Inside he found the pot valued at around $500,000.
Carrera was booked in the Jasper County Jail, where he awaits charges.
