Tennessee Man Arrested for Money Laundering

Three individuals traveling from Nashville, Tennessee to Dallas in a Black Cadillac Escalade were found to be in possession of $73,068 when Hopkins County Deputies stopped them Thursday morning. The driver, through an interpreter, voluntarily admitted they were on their way to Dallas to purchase 30lbs of marijuana and pay $2,000 to $2,200 per pound.

The driver stated that they planned to sell the marijuana for $2,800 to $3,000 per pound or $250 to $300 per ounce in Nashville. He said the customers were friends or people he knew.

The traffic stop was initiated when the Escalade failed to maintain a single lane. The driver of the vehicle did grant permission to search the vehicle and the money was found in two separate places. The money was packaged in a manner used by those who participate in the drug trade.  K-9 O’Malley alerted positive on the money.

The Tennessee man was arrested for money laundering more than $30,000 but less than $150,000, a Felony 3.
