Two relatives who live at the same Oak Lawn home were busted in Evergreen Park on drug-related charges, police said.
Brad A Wnek, 38, of the 5700 block of West 101 Place, was charged with possessing a controlled substance on Aug. 30, Evergreen Park police said. He was a passenger in a car driven by Brian A. Wnek, 27, of the same address. Brian is accused of possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia and was cited for improper lane use and driving without insurance.
The Wneks' car was stopped for improper lane use at about 1:15 p.m. near the intersection of 103rd Street and Kedzie Avenue, police said.
Officers spotted a plastic baggie filled with what later tested positive as marijuana and a smoking pipe in the car, police said.
Cops also saw Brad attempt to hide a plastic baggie in the waistband of his shorts. The bag contained 27 pills that were identified as Alprazolam, police said. He did not have a prescription for the pills.
Police were not sure how the two men were related.
