A Chicago man faces four charges after allegedly being caught with $60,000 worth of heroin during a traffic stop last week on the Fond du Lac Indian Reservation.

Antonio Darrell Holmes, 26, was charged Monday in State District Court with three felonies and a gross misdemeanor charge. Police said 4.3 ounces of heroin were seized from him following a traffic stop Thursday night on the 3500 block of Rustic Lane northwest of Cloquet.

Holmes, a passenger in the car, initially gave a false name and birth date during the traffic stop, according to Fond du Lac police. When transported to the St. Louis County Jail, officers allegedly found the heroin and $2,500 in cash.

Holmes is charged with two first-degree controlled substance crimes and one count each of introducing contraband into a jail and giving a false name to a police officer.

His bail was set at $50,000 at an initial appearance Monday. He is due in court again on March 18.
