, was pulled over about 7 p.m. Tuesday at Milwaukee and Grand Avenues in Gurnee, according to the Lake County sheriff's office.

Detectives from the Lake County Sheriff’s Special Investigations Unit seized 67 pills of Ecstasy, described as a synthetic, psychoactive drug that is chemically similar to the stimulant

methamphetamine

and the hallucinogen mescaline.

Estrella was charged with one count of unlawful possession of a controlled substance, one count of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, which is a Class X felony, and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.

“Yet another great arrest by the Special Investigations Unit,” Sheriff Mark Curran said in the release. “This is the type of drug used by the youth of our communities and we will do all we can as law enforcement to keep it off our streets.”
