Kamil Misztal released on $100,000 bail

Federal prosecutors have filed marijuana trafficking and gun possession charges against a popular social media influencer who runs a luxury car rental business in Illinois, court records show. Kamil Misztal, 31, was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and possessing more than 100 pounds of marijuana with intent to distribute. He was released from federal custody May 16 on a $100,000 bond, three days after arranging to turn himself in on the federal arrest warrant.

Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent Brian Nehring wrote in the criminal complaint that federal authorities began investigating Misztal last October, based on the suspicion he was arranging for marijuana to be transported from California to Illinois.

“I received information that Misztal lived outside of California in Illinois where he ran an exotic vehicle rental business ‘I-94 Exotics.’ I also received information that Misztal regularly travelled to California to obtain multiple, 100-pound quantities of marijuana and then transported the marijuana back to Illinois for distribution,” Nehring wrote.

On Oct. 27, agents raided a Roseville home where Misztal was believed to be staying, seized roughly $28,000 in cash, approximately 140 pounds of marijuana in one-pound bags, and a pistol that Misztal was prohibited from possessing due to a 2007 burglary conviction, according to the complaint.

Misztal has more than 500,000 Instagram followers and has publicly spoken about his journey to becoming a “self-made millionaire,” starting with working at grocery stores and car detailing jobs when he was just 13. He also owns a legal marijuana business, according to interviews and sponsored content, including a sponsored post that was published by the Bay Area News Group.

While he’s out of custody and the case is pending, Misztal’s travel is limited to Florida, Chicago, and California, where he lives and owns businesses, according to court records. His next court date has been set for June 2. The gun charge carries a maximum 10-year sentence for Misztal if he is convicted.
