Pot Bust Yields Cash and Weapon
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.
