OSSEO, Wis. (AP) — A Chicago man is in trouble with the law after police in western Wisconsin discovered $20,000 worth of cocaine in his car.

The La Crosse Tribune reports that court documents show a Trempealeau County Sheriff’s deputy stopped 33-year-old Dajuan Cortez Thomas on Interstate 94 near Osseo on Monday for multiple traffic violations.

A police dog alerted to narcotics in the car. A search of the vehicle revealed 300 grams of cocaine.

Online court records show Thomas has been charged with possession of cocaine with intent to deliver.

He posted a $20,000 cash bond on Tuesday and is due back in court for a preliminary hearing April 19. Thomas’ attorney didn’t return a voicemail left at his office Sunday.
