By Daily Illini Staff Report

A 28-year-old man from Chicago pled not guilty to a charge of possession with intent to deliver between 2,500 to 5,000 grams of cannabis in a Champaign County courtroom Thursday.

Daniel Wrestler was arrested in a parking lot, 1010 W. Illinois St., located near Illinois Street Residence Hall around 12 p.m. Wednesday, University Police Sgt. Joe McCullough said.

Wrestler was found with a package of cannabis weighing in at 3,700 grams, the equivalent of about 8 pounds.

Police tracked the package from out of state and observed Wrestler getting the package out of the bed of a truck, McCullough said.

Police learned of the delivery through an anonymous tip, were able to verify the information from the tip and that Wrestler would be present, McCullough said.

No other arrests made; however, the case is still ongoing.
