Police recovered $30,000 in cash along with over three pounds of cannabis and a large quantity of ecstasy pills during a traffic stop in Waukegan, officials said.

Armond Phillips, 32, of Chicago, was charged with manufacturing ecstasy, possession of meth, manufacturing or delivery of cannabis, possession of cannabis over 500 grams, unlawful use of cannabis by driver, operating an uninsured motor vehicle, improper use of registration and expired registration.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Lillian Lewis said officers with the Waukegan Police Department conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle around 9:30 p.m. on August 4.

Phillips was driving a vehicle with improper temporary tags in the area of 8th Street and McAlister Avenue.

Officers smelled a strong odor of cannabis coming from the vehicle, in which Phillips was the driver and sole occupant, Lewis said.

Two digital scales and ziplock baggies were also found, Lewis said. 72 grams of ecstasy pills were found in a safe.

Lake County Judge Paul Novak said Phillips has a number of prison sentences for felony convictions.

Novak ordered Phillips, who was on parole at the time of his arrest, held on a $750,000 bond.

Phillips remains held in the Lake County Jail and would need to post $75,000 cash in order to be released.

A status of attorney hearing is scheduled for Monday.
