Man gets 5 years after Winn. Co. police find bricks of cannabis in car


A 33-year-old man was sentenced to five years in prison for a February 2011 traffic stop during which police found just under 5,000 grams of cannabis in his vehicle.

Anibal Rosas was pulled over for a traffic violation when deputies with the Winnebago County Sheriff's police say he and his passenger seemed nervous and there was a strong smell of cannabis emanating from the vehicle.

Rosas gave police consent to search the car and admitted to having cannabis inside. A large black trash bag with two small white trash bags containing bricks of suspected cannabis inside was found by police. The bricks had an approximate gross weight just under 5,000 grams and a portion of it later field-tested positive for probably presence of cannabis.

Rosas pled guilty to possession with intent to deliver 2,000 to 5,000 grams of cannabis on September 25.
