Illinois State Police stopped Robles on Oct. 16, 2012, as he was driving eastbound on I-290 after they observed him crossing several lanes of traffic while attempting to access the southbound I-294 ramp, prosecutors said during Robles' bond hearing last year.

After the trooper detected a strong odor of cannabis coming from the car, he asked Robles if he had any drug paraphernalia, after which Robles handed the officer a glass pipe, prosecutors said.

A search of the car revealed marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy with a total street value of more than $13,000, prosecutors said.
