Evanston police seized 85 grams of cannabis and $4,100 in cash believed to be linked to drug sales during a routine traffic stop earlier this week.

Sergio R. Papillon, 29, of 1712 Greenleaf St. was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of cannabis and unlawful possession with intent to deliver cannabis.

The arrest occurred Monday at about 9:20 p.m. near Greenleaf Street and Asbury Avenue, when Papillon’s vehicle was stopped by an officer on patrol for a traffic violation, according to a police news release Wednesday.

Papillon is scheduled to appear in Skokie District Court on Dec. 23 at 9 a.m.
