Man passed out in taxi possessed $450K in drugs

A Chicago taxi driver had a passenger pass out in his cab. When the man couldn't be aroused, the driver took him to a police station.

Police searched the passenger bag and found bottles of a "clear, crystalline substance" connected by wires to a "power source," which together apparently amounted to a miniature methamphetamine lab

The street value of the drugs in the man's bag was nearly $450,000
