COOPER COUNTY, Mo. — A large stash of marijuana products, drug paraphernalia and marijuana itself was found during a vehicle stop in early December of last year and has led to charges for a pair from Illinois.

A probable cause statement filed in Cooper County alleges that law enforcement officials found more than 450 grams of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and over three pounds of marijuana-laced products, including lotion, candies, salve, candies and brownies during a traffic stop on Interstate 70 at the 98 mile marker on December 1, 2017.

Karl A. Strater, 57, of Champaign, Il., and Ryan Mark Burnett, 35, of Villa Grove, Il., both face charges for felony possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both men reportedly remain at large. Anyone with information about Strater or Burnett should contact their local law enforcement agency.
