Palatine police stopped a Cary man who drove under activated railroad gates last week and found two pounds of marijuana and other drugs in his vehicle, authorities said Monday.
About 9:30 p.m. Thursday, police saw a truck drive under the gates at South Hicks Road and Northwest Highway, according to a news release.
After failing a sobriety test, the driver, David J. Lee, 45, of the 6700 block of Pheasant Trail, Cary, resisted arrest and police used a Taser on him, according to the release.
Lee was charged with: driving under the influence, resisting arrest, aggravated battery to a police officer, felony possession of cannabis with the intent to deliver, felony possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver, unlawful use of a weapon, possession of drug paraphernalia, and driving with an expired license.
All told, police said they recovered about two pounds of marijuana, 43 grams of crystal meth and a switchblade knife.
Lee's bond was set at $25,000.
On June 1, Lee pleaded guilty to cocaine possession and was sentenced to four years in custody with credit for 30 days in jail. He was also ordered to pay $2,789 in fines, according to court records. The other charges were dropped.
