BOLINGBROOK, Ill., Dec. 30 (UPI) -- Police in Illinois said they arrested two men who fled from a traffic stop and attempted to hide a bag of marijuana in a residence.

Bolingbrook Police Lt. Mike Rompa said officers attempted to pull over a black Ford Explorer seen driving recklessly around 1:45 p.m. Dec. 16 and followed the vehicle to a Springwood Lane home when it refused to stop, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Friday.

Rompa said a passenger ran from the vehicle and into the home with two officers in pursuit and they saw the man, identified as Brandon Miller, 24, throw an object into his room.

The object was found to be a bag of marijuana and Miller told the officers the bag was the reason the vehicle fled the traffic stop.

Miller and the driver, Brian Hooper, 19, were arrested and later released on bond.
