According to police, Woodfield security called officers to the mall about 1:40 p.m. Saturday after detecting an odor of marijuana coming from a vehicle in which Mason and Rossiter were sitting.

Mason fled on foot prior to police arriving, but was taken into custody a short time later, according to the Schaumburg Police Department.

Police say a subsequent investigation revealed Mason and Rossiter met in the mall parking lot, where Mason sold approximately one-half pound of marijuana to Rossiter in exchange for $1,000 cash.

Recovered from the scene were approximately 250 grams of suspected cannabis, approximately 74 grams of a substance suspected to be THC wax, approximately $1,000 cash, and various items of drug paraphernalia, police said.
