Luzar also picked up a misdemeanor charge for possession of drug paraphernalia.

If found guilty of the felony charges filed against them, the three could spend up to 15 years behind bars.

Nygren said approximately nine pounds of cannabis with a street value of $34,000 was seized from one of the vehicles.

He added that deputies also seized a 2006 Infiniti that was used in the drug transaction.

According to the McHenry County Sheriffs Jail inmate search, Luzar and De Los Santos have been released after posting bond while Barraza remains in the McHenry County jail in lieu of $6,000 bond.
