A Mississippi man was stopped in Macoupin County on Monday, June 14 by Illinois State Police and charged later in the day by Macoupin County State’s Attorney Jordan Garrison with multiple drug charges.
Garrison announced late Monday afternoon Marc Wash, 43 of Mississippi, was charged with controlled substance trafficking (class X felony), possession with intent to delivery (class X felony), and possession of a controlled substance (class 1 felony).
Wash was in possession with approximately five kilograms or 11 pounds of cocaine. The street value for the cocaine is over $100,000.
“Thanks to efforts of Illinois State Police District 18, five kilograms of cocaine will never make it to the streets, “Garrison said.
If convicted, Wash faces a minimum sentence of 30 years and a maximum sentence of 120 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. His next court appearance is June 30.
