August 30th, 2003

More than 200 pounds of marijuana was discovered during a routine inspection of an 18 wheeler.

State police say 3 people were arrested.

Officials say they found several bundles of marijuana inside cardboard boxes during the search.

The suspects were identified as 46 year old Calvin Wells, 32 year old Jackie Adams and 21 year old Hector Renteria.

Officials say Wells and Adams are from Tennessee and Renteria is from Texas.

The truck was apparently headed from El Paso, Texas, to Nashville, Tennessee.

Each is charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
