Washington St., Des Plaines, Illinois, and Mohammed Bassam Al-Hadidi, 20, of Chicago, who were each charged with first-offense possession of a controlled substance-marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Four Illinoisans were arrested early Saturday on U.S. Interstate 80 near Earlham after they were stopped for speeding, and Dallas County Deputy Sheriff allegedly found cannabis-related drugs in their possession.

Patrick Mark Filipkowski, 19, of 4414 N. Neehah Ave., Harwood Heights, Illinois, was charged with controlled substance violation, first-offense possession of a controlled substance, failure to affix drug stamp and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Hector M. Avila, 25, of 2712 N. Rutherford Ave., Chicago, was charged with first-offense possession of a controlled substance-marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Mohammed Bassam Al-Hadidi, 20, of 5249 N. Laramie St., Chicago, was charged with first-offense possession of a controlled substance-marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Sabrina Danielle Taylor, 21, of 19 E. Washington St., Des Plaines, Illinois, was charged with first-offense possession of a controlled substance-marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The incident began about 12:15 a.m. Saturday near the 104 mile marker of eastbound U.S. Interstate 80, where the deputy initiated a traffic stop on a 2012 Volkswagen doing 77 mph in a 70-mph zone.

The deputy made contact with the occupants of the vehicle and “could smell the odor of raw and burnt marijuana coming from inside of the vehicle,” according to court records. The driver allegedly told the deputy that “there was marijuana inside of the car.”

A probable-cause search of the vehicle ensued, disclosing “canisters and bags which contained marijuana bud, marijuana THC wax and THC vape carts,” according to court records.

Filipkowski allegedly “admitted post-Miranda that one of the bags located which contained more than 10 THC vape carts and other THC items belonged to him.”

The search also disclosed “a plastic bag that contained a white crystal/flake substance” that Filipkowski said was “Ketamine,” according to court records. Several “drug paraphernalia smoking devices containing residue” were also found in the vehicle.

Filipkowski is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $10,000 cash-only bond. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Nov. 10 in Dallas County District Court.

Al-Hadidi, Avila and Taylor were held in the Dallas County Jail before each posted a $1,000 cash bond. Each is scheduled to appear Nov. 10 in Dallas County District Court.

*A criminal charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is innocent until and unless proven guilty.

  1. The weed was legally purchased and they were on their way to Illinois where weed is legal to process. For three of them, their only real crime was traveling through Iowa to go home. Iowa is so backward.
