SYCAMORE – A 27-year-old Sycamore man was arrested after police said they found marijuana and drug paraphernalia in his car during a traffic stop Thursday morning in Sycamore.
DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputies pulled over Michael T. Gardner, 27, of the 700 block of Reynolds Road in Sycamore, for disobeying a stop sign and improper lane usage about 8:35 a.m. Thursday at California and State streets in Sycamore, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.
A K-9 unit was employed for an “open-air sniff,” and the dog detected narcotics. Deputies searched the vehicle and found more than 60 grams, or more than 2 ounces, of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, DeKalb County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Andy Sullivan said.
Gardner faces charges of drug possession and intent to deliver. He was taken to the DeKalb County Jail and his car was towed from the scene.
He’ll have a bond hearing at 1 p.m. Friday.
