CREST HILL - Police say a teen had over $3,000 worth of marijuana in his car Monday night.

Deputy Chief Brad Hertzmann said police were called at 11:50 p.m. after residents in the 1600 block of Dearborn Street reported a suspicious vehicle parked in front of a house.

When officers arrived they found Cristian Guzman, 18, sitting alone in a 2016 Hyundai Genesis and detected the odor of burned cannabis, Hertzmann said.

Police searched the vehicle and reportedly found bags containing over 300 grams of marijuana and prescription narcotics.
