Oak Lawn man charged after police find cocaine in vehicle during traffic stop

Ricardo Council III

An Oak Lawn man has been charged after police found cocaine in his vehicle during a traffic stop last week.

Last Friday, Lansing police conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by 33-year-old Ricardo Council III.

While speaking with Council, police determined he did not have a driver's license. They also discovered that he was in possession of nearly 130 grams of suspected cocaine.


He was taken into custody and charged with possession of a controlled substance, no valid driver's license and possession of adult-use cannabis in a motor vehicle.

A judge set Council's bond at $10,000 and he was released after posting a 10 percent deposit.
