Sheriff Melvin Bond said two people have spent most of the past week in the Haywood County jail, charged in connection with an I-40 traffic stop and drug bust. Bond said West Tennessee Drug Task Force officer Omar Jundi made the traffic stop February 6 resulting in the arrests.
Jundi stopped an eastbound U-Haul near mile-marker 47 in Haywood County. The two occupants consented to a search of the vehicle, according to officials. Officers say they found 307.7 pound of marijuana stashed in cardboard boxes inside of a freezer being transported in the U-Haul.
Alfredo Resendez Pacheo, 30, and Priscilla Virginia Abrego, 29, face charges. Sheriff Bond said Pacheo posted a $50,000 bond Tuesday night and was released. Abrego remains in jail under $50,000 bond.
