More than 1,000 grams of purported methamphetamine was taken off the streets Tuesday in Bureau County by Tri-Country Drug Enforcement Narcotics Team agents.
Agents said they arrested Theodis A. Bagby, 63, of Chicago, on charges of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, which is a class X felony, following a traffic stop on Interstate 80 near mile post 40 in Bureau County.
Drug agents said a K-9 conducted a free air sniff and indicated the presence of narcotics coming from the vehicle. After a search, police found five clear vacuum sealed packages containing purported meth.
Bagby was taken to Bureau County Jail, where bond was set at $350,000, with 10% to apply. He faces a minimum 6 to 30 years in prison if convicted.
