Re: Officer and K-9 Locate $220,400 of Marijuana

 

On Saturday, February 18th 2012, officers with the Texarkana Arkansas Police Special Operations Unit located three suitcases containing a large amount of marijuana at the Greyhound Bus Terminal, 405 East 51st Street. Officer Jeff Savage and his partner, K-9 Officer Zorg, were at the bus terminal conducting safety checks of the incoming buses, when K-9 Zorg signaled an odor response to Officer Savage, indicating possible narcotics were located inside three suitcases that were stored in the luggage bay of a bus.

Upon further investigation Officer Savage located several wrapped bundles of marijuana in all three of suspicious suitcases. The confiscated marijuana was approximately 116 pounds, worth an estimated $220,400.

The owner of the package was not located on scene. This investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is encouraged to notify TAPD or Texarkana area CrimeStoppers at 903-793-STOP.
