TRUMANN, AR (KAIT) - 47 pounds of pot are off the streets following a drug bust on a federal fugitive Sunday night.
Robert Gerald Britton is the suspect in the case. Britton had been serving a 7-year sentence on drug and stolen car charges in Texas when he allegedly left the halfway house he was staying in, which is a violation of the sentence. This was about a month ago.
The marijuana seized, aside from being over 40 pounds worth, was a high-end "hydroponic" marijuana which is more potent and consequenty more expensive.
