Five Illinois travelers were arrested Sunday night on U.S. Interstate 80 near De Soto after a stop for speeding led to drug charges.

Esmeralda Bernal-Aparicio, 23, of 2308 11th St., Silvis, Illinois, was charged with first-offense possession of a controlled substance.

Ramiro Miguel Cedeno, 25, of 234 39th St., Moline, Illinois, was charged with first-offense possession of a controlled substance.

Geoffrey Vernon Devore, 25, of 601 Windam Dr., Solon, Illinois, was charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Carlitos Clayton Miranda, 24, of 224 32nd Ave., East Moline, Illinois, was charged with two counts of controlled substance violation and two counts of failure to affix drug stamp and was issued a citation for speeding.

Scott Allan Cook Sarazin, 27, 3225 69th Ave., Moline, Illinois, was charged with possession of a controlled substance.

The incident began about 10 p.m. near the 110 mile marker of eastbound U.S. Interstate 80, where an Iowa State Patrol Trooper initiated a traffic stop on a 2020 Nissan Armada with Washington plates after the trooper’s “radar displayed that the vehicle was traveling 75 mph in a 70 mph speed limit zone,” according to court records.

The trooper made contact with the occupants of the vehicle and allegedly “could smell the odor of raw marijuana coming from inside of the vehicle,” according to court records.

Miranda, the driver, allegedly “admitted that there was marijuana inside of the vehicle,” and a probable cause search of the vehicle disclosed “several canisters and containers containing a green leafy/bud substance,” weighing about 42.5 grams, according to court records.

The search also disclosed “several (greater than 10) THC vape carts” and “THC oils and wax,” according to court records.

Miranda is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $20,000 cash or surety bond. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Feb. 4 in Dallas County District Court.

Bernal-Aparicio, Cedeno, Devore and Sarazin are each held in the Dallas County Jail on a $1,000 cash or surety bond. Each is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Feb. 4 in Dallas County District Court.
