On Monday night the Will County Sheriff’s Office arrested three individuals after uncovering over 20 kilos of cocaine in the trunk of their car. It was at 8:20pm on Monday night that the Sheriff’s Gang Suppression Unit arrested three subjects after a traffic stop was performed on a vehicle that they observed crossing over the center line on three occasions. Deputies made the stop in the area of Monee-Manhattan Road near the intersection of Harlem Avenue in Green Garden Township. The driver, 31-year-old Jorge Vargas-Moreno of Chicago, appeared nervous and was trembling as he was speaking with the deputies. He was asked to exit the vehicle, along with the other two passengers, 35-year-old Bulmaro Castelan-Diaz of Chicago and 22-year-old Yolanda Tavira-Berrum of LaSalle. The Sheriff’s Department K-9 was called to the scene and conducted a sniff search of the vehicle and provided authorities with a positive hit for narcotics in the trunk of the car. A search of the trunk uncovered 20 kilos of wrapped bricks containing cocaine. The estimated street value of the cocaine was $1.125 million.
