The Tri-DENT drug task force is on a roll, making a number of busts over the past few days. The latest came Tuesday morning before 9, when agents stopped 40-year-old Germane Flemons of Chicago for speeding on I-80 in Bureau County.

Officers used a K9, and, during the search, agents found several vacuum-sealed packages thought to contain seven pounds of methamphetamine.

Flemons was charged with Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine with the Intent to Deliver over 900 grams. That's Class-X Felony.

As of Wednesday, Trident had seized about 77 pounds of Methamphetamine in 2020.
