Quincy Police and the West Central Drug Task force arrested five Quincy residents for cannabis trafficking.
Sgt. Patrick Frazier said two traffic stops resulted in arrests for unlawful possession of cannabis in excess of 5,000 grams with intent to deliver.
Deamontae. L. Hill, 20, Maqualla M. Gholston, 26, Proter H. Peoples, 27, Ebony N. Werner, 28, and Rashad L. Snoddy, 26 were arrested after the traffic stops and searches of the vehicles.
Surveillance footage showed that the group got cannabis and brought it across state lines.
Police found approximately 85 pounds of cannabis in the vehicles.
The arrests stem from a multi-state investigation that began earlier in the summer involving individuals importing and distributing large amounts of cannabis in the Quincy area.
The investigation is on going and additional arrests are expected.
