Pot Bust Yields Cash and Weapon

Wednesday, 19 September 2012

An investigation led the Knox County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit to a house in North Knox County that netted marijuana, a large set of scales, packaging material, a large amount of cash, and a firearm.  The bust happened late Tuesday night at 8647 Pedigo Road.  The resident, 52 year old Sergio Castaneda, is in the Knox County Detention Facility on a $50,000 bond.  He is charged with sale and delivery of Schedule VI (marijuana).

Officers confiscated 89.7 pounds of marijuana, $13,541 in cash, and a SKS semi automatic assault rifle.  Kinte, a K-9 in the unit, aided officers by alerting on areas for them to search.  Officers call this bust a “significant” one.
