Texas Traveler’s Order Upended Near I-57: Illinois Cops Uncover Cocaine in Cheeseburger


Share post:

WILLIAMSON COUNTY, IL – An unexpected twist in traffic near the I-57 overpass closure served up a major bust for Williamson County Sheriff’s deputies on a routine check Sunday. 

What was set to be a standard detour for Jesus A. Garza Trevino, a Lone Star state native, quickly flipped when his reportedly nervous demeanor at a local truck stop caught the watchful eyes of law enforcement.

The Road Ranger Travel Center became the stage for Trevino’s unraveling plans. Reported suspicious movements and a sudden pivot when deputies arrived, sparked a closer inspection. The officers’ noses weren’t just tuned to the scent of diesel and diner coffee—they sniffed out something far more illicit allegedly tucked within a Wendy’s cheeseburger: a powdery stash of cocaine.

Adding to the roadside recipe for arrest, Trevino could not provide his final stop in Indiana, his supposed destination. This vague itinerary raised eyebrows and suspicion alike. A free air sniff by a K9 unit and a probable cause search turned the Texas-registered vehicle inside out, leading to the discovery of narcotics and turning Trevino’s travel plans on their head.

Now facing a combo of charges including possession, trafficking, and delivery of a controlled substance, Trevino’s trip has taken a detour to the Williamson County Jail. The Sheriff’s Office is encouraging anyone with the secret sauce on this or other investigations to contact them, guaranteeing anonymity for every tipster with a taste for justice.
