A Georgia man has been arrested for trafficking more than 5,000 grams of cannabis in Jefferson County.

The Illinois State Police reports 48-year old Mikhail Subbotin of Lawrenceville, Georgia is charged with Possession of Cannabis, Cannabis Trafficking, and Possession with Intent to Deliver Cannabis.

Late Wednesday morning, a trooper patrolling in the area of Interstate 64 eastbound near milepost 71 stopped Subbotin's vehicle for speeding.

The Trooper smelled cannabis coming from the vehicle and a consensual search of the vehicle revealed several boxes filled with suspected cannabis.

Law enforcement eventually removed over 400 pounds of cannabis from the vehicle.
