More than $9,000 worth of illegal drugs such as LSD and cocaine were seized last week by Rutherford County Sheriff’s deputies patrolling on Interstate 24 before the Bonnaroo festival in Manchester.
Sheriff Robert Arnold says deputies seized 37 hits of LSD, almost an ounce of cocaine, illegal mushrooms and numerous prescription pills. He added even fruit flavored marijuana was discovered.
Deputy Jonathan McGee said some of the hash oil seized came from dispensaries in Colorado. Some marijuana was found in cookies.
A total of seven suspects were arrested, and 97 citations on drug violations were issued, according to the sheriff’s office. Deputies also wrote four traffic citations and 125 warning citations.
The drugs were found through K-9 officers scanning 40 vehicles. (WGNS)
