One of five Quincyians facing drug charges entered a not guilty plea in Adams County Circuit Court Tuesday.

28 year old Ebony Werner pleaded not guilty to one count of cannabis trafficking.

Werner and four others were arrested August 26th after two traffic stops in Quincy in which police found 85 pounds of cannabis with a total street value of $400,000.

The arrests were the result of a multistate summer-long cannabis conspiracy investigation by West Central Illinois Task Force agents.

Werner will be back in court for a status hearing October 9th. She is in the Adams County Jail on $300,000 bond.
