CHICAGO — Police discovered nearly 350 pounds of marijuana during a drug bust in Ashburn Saturday. The street value of the drugs is just under $1 million, police said.
Miguel A. Briseno, 22, of the 3600 block of West 82nd Street, was charged with one count of felony cannabis possession.
When cops pulled over Briseno on Jan. 14 during an "investigatory traffic stop" in the 4300 block of South Princeton Avenue in Fuller Park, officers found nearly two pounds of marijuana, police said.
Police suspected that Briseno was storing a large amount of marijuana at his Ashburn home, officials said.
Following a nearly two-week investigation, cops searched Briseno's home on Saturday — uncovering roughly 350 pounds of marijuana. The total street value is estimated at nearly $1 million.
Briseno was released on his own recongnizance Sunday.
