Seat Belt Violation Triggers Controlled Substance Arrest: Police Blotter

Unauthorized prescription drugs were seized in a traffic stop.

A 29year-old Chicago man was spotted by New Lenox police for driving without a seat belt and wound up in Will County jail.

Kyle Chillemi was pulled over at 1:45 pm. Jan. 15 at Cedar Road and Joliet Highway. Police then learned that he was also driving on a suspended license. It wasn't until police inspected the car before it was towed that they discovered a controlled substance, Suboxne, said Deputy Police Chief Bob Pawlisz.

Suboxone (buprenorphine and naloxone) is used to treat opiate addiction.

He may have had a script but if you have your pills in your pocket or anywhere and not in bottle you're screwed. At least until your lawyer can prove you had them prescribed then you may get charges lowered or dropped.

Suboxone is also deadly and the Dr. That prescribes it has to sign document stating they ate responsible if you die. You have to be closely monitored and its expensive.

Yet they just did by making a traffic stop. Happens all the time. Would you prefer they go door to door?
