The first of two men who allegedly had more than two pounds of marijuana in their car when stopped last winter by Naperville police has been sentenced to jail for that crime.

Treshawn J. Clark pleaded guilty to a felony charge of the manufacture or delivery of more than 500 but not more than 2,000 grams of marijuana, according to records on file in DuPage County Circuit Court in Wheaton.

Clark, 19, of South Bend, Ind., was arrested at 9:05 p.m. Feb. 14, along with Printiss L. McMorris, 33, of south suburban South Holland. They were taken into custody following a traffic stop on Naperville’s northeast side.

Judge John J. Kinsella on Tuesday sentenced Clark to 72 days in DuPage County Jail, and placed him on two years of probation. Court records indicated Clark spent 36 days in jail following his arrest, and with day-for-day credit for good behavior, has already completed his term and been released.

Naperville police Sgt. Bill Davis said members of the department’s Special Operations group that night stopped a silver, 2005 Nissan near the intersection of Ogden Avenue and Naper Boulevard. McMorris was driving the vehicle, with Clark riding in the front passenger seat, Davis said in an email.

The officers “could smell the odor of cannabis emanating from the inside of the vehicle,” and saw “small amounts of a green, leafy substance on the center console,” Davis said. Illinois State Police sent a K-9 unit to the area, and the specially-trained dog “indicated that drugs were in the vehicle,” he said.

“In the back seat of the vehicle was a suitcase that contained 2.25 lbs. of suspected cannabis having an approximate street value of $10,000,” Davis said. Additionally, McMorris “was found to have two plastic baggies containing 3.5 ounces of suspected cannabis” in his pockets, Davis said.

McMorris is free on bond and scheduled to return July 10 to court. Court records showed he faces trial on the same charge as Clark, as well as three traffic violations.
