DECATUR — A Decatur woman pulled over after exiting Interstate 72 near Argenta planned to traffic in more than 3 pounds of the synthetic cannabis drug, also known as K2, police said.

Tiffany R. Rogers, 32, was stopped Feb. 19 on Argenta Road by members of the Decatur Police Department Street Crimes Unit. Macon County Sheriff’s Office K-9 officer MACO alerted to the presence of drugs in her SUV, a sworn affidavit said.

Rogers was arrested and booked on preliminary charges of the possession with intent to deliver of more than 200 grams of a schedule 1 narcotic and controlled substance trafficking, the affidavit said.

Rogers does not yet have an attorney and has not entered a plea. She remained in Macon County Jail on Tuesday night in lieu of $100,000 bond.

The affidavit said police found the bulk of the drug in two bags while another bag contained various smaller bags of the drug along with two sets of digital scales and other items.

During questioning, the affidavit quoted Rogers as saying she picked up the drug and drug supplies in visits to Fayetteville, North Carolina, and Baltimore, Maryland, and then returned to Illinois.

“Rogers advised she planned on selling the synthetic cannabinoids to people in Decatur, Springfield and Bloomington,” the affidavit said.
