During three traffic stops, Sheriff’s deputies arrested three out-of-state residents who were involved in transporting large amounts of THC in unincorporated Will County.
On Friday, December 20, deputies made a traffic stop on a vehicle that was speeding and changing lanes without using a signal. Deputies spoke to the driver, Aubrey Honeycutt, age 32, of 12921 Mallard Road in Thompsonville, Michigan, and probable cause for a vehicle search was determined. Additional deputies arrived, along with K9 partner, Malice, who positively alerted to the vehicle. The search revealed nine vacuum-sealed bags containing 20,989.4 grams of THC wax and one vacuum-sealed bag containing ten cannabis joints in a duffel bag. Also located was three THC cartridges, two THC vape pens, 2 grams of cannabis. Honeycutt was transported to the Will County Sheriff’s Office Adult Detention Facility on charges of delivery/manufacture of cannabis over 10 grams and possession of cannabis over 100 grams, improper lane usage, speeding, and improper passing.
While deputies were performing their search of Honeycutt’s vehicle, a deputy observed a suspicious vehicle who had been driving erratically in the area prior to Honeycutt’s traffic stop. Deputies conducted a traffic stop on I-80, near Chicago St. While speaking to the driver Taleesun Luckett-Baker, age 24, of 14550 Takilma Road in Cave Junction, Oregon it was determined that he was involved with Honeycutt and the transportation of the drugs. Luckett-Baker was taken into custody and charged with possession of cannabis over 100 grams, delivery/manufacture of cannabis over 10 grams, improper lane usage and following too closely.
Honeycutt and Luckett-Baker appeared in bond court where they each received $100,000.00 bond (10% to apply). They both posted bond in the afternoon of December 21, 2019.
