Springfield Traffic Stop Nets Drug Bust
A traffic stop for blowing through a stop sign turned into a drug and weapons grab for Illinois State Police last week. Today, police released information about a traffic stop last week. They said a trooper pulled over Jeffrey Moss, 24, at Laurel and Spring streets in Springfield. During the stop, a K-9 unit was called out, and after a search of Moss' truck, police found eight marijuana plants, 10 pounds of pot, and a stolen handgun. Moss now faces charges of possession of a stolen firearm and several drug offenses.
