Two out-of-state men were arrested Thursday at the Greyhound bus station in Louisville in a drug sting that police said uncovered marijuana, cocaine and pills.
Louisville Metro Police detectives used drug-sniffing dogs to locate the drugs in one man’s pocket and another man’s carry-on luggage.
Nekos Jamon Tatum, 28, of Jackson, Tenn., gave up two small bags of marijuana after a dog zeroed in on his pocket, according to his arrest report. When they searched him, the report said police also found two bindles of cocaine and white pills. The dog also detected drugs in Tatum’s carry-on bag, where police found more marijuana and red pills.
Police also searched a carry-on bag belonging to Carl Lee Stoneburgh Jr., 24, of Friendswood, Tex., after the dog signaled the possible presence of drugs, according to his arrest report. Stoneburgh admitted the bag was his and gave police a small bag of marijuana from a shoe in the bag, the report said. Police said they then searched the bag and found more than a pound of marijuana and a digital scale.
Tatumwas charged with possession of cocaine, possession of a controlled substance and trafficking in marijuana. Stoneburgh was charged with trafficking in marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
