Note to people traveling in a vehicle with $4 million worth of cannabis: Dont drive 35 mph on the interstate. Thats what Kane County Sheriffs police say Xaiana Thammayong, 45, of Elgin did Saturday morning about 10:30 a.m. near northwest suburban Huntley, according to a release from the sheriffs office. A deputy was traveling west on I-90 near Route 47 when he saw a Ford Econoline van with an Arizona plate driving westbound at about 35 mph. Thammayong appeared to be leaning back in his seat to hide his face from the deputy who pulled up alongside the van. He ultimately stopped the van near the exit ramp at Route 20 in Hampshire Township. Once the van was stopped, Thammayong and his passenger, 59-year-old Xom M. Vongsaly of Fresno, Calif., switched places, the release said. The deputies identified both and found Thammayong, the original driver, was wanted by Elgin police for failing to register as a child sex offender. His Illinois drivers license was also revoked, the release said. Both were taken into custody and a search of the vehicle uncovered more than 230 pounds of high-quality cannabis with an estimated street value of $4 million, the release said. That type of cannabis is usually sold for as much as $40 per gram. Both Thammayong and Vongsaly were charged with one count each of cannabis trafficking, delivery of more than 5,000 grams of cannabis and possession of more than 5,000 grams of cannabis. Thammayong was also charged with driving on a revoked license. Bail for Thammayong was set at $10.125 million, while Vongsaly was ordered held on $10 million bail, the release said. $4M worth of cannabis found in slow-moving van on expressway - Chicago Sun-Times --------------------------------------------------- But are they illegals?
