Police reportedly found a suspected marijuana dealer had more marijuana in his car last month.

Dimarrius V. Jimerson, 32, was taken into custody by Will County Sheriff's police Tuesday on his second warrant for delivery of marijuana, according to jail records.

Joliet Police Deputy Chief Ed Gregory said about 1 p.m. May 12, tactical officers went to the 100 block of Hobbs Avenue in Joliet to arrest Jimerson for the first warrant, charging him with delivery of marijuana.

"When officers approached the back of the residence, Jimerson was sitting by himself in a car parked in the alley. When he saw the officers, he bailed out of the car and led them on a footchase in which he jumped some fences and was able to get away," Gregory said.

But when police went back to the car, they saw 10 baggies of marijuana by the center console and 22 baggies in a black sweatshirt on the passenger seat, Gregory said.

According to jail records, Jimerson was arrested on a delivery of marijuana charges in May 2016, October 2015 and October 2012. Jimerson, who was also wanted for non-payment of child support, is being held on $110,100 bond.
