Police find 87 pounds of marijuana on San Francisco-Nashville flight


Some people say you should go big or go home; others go big and go to jail.

Nashville Airport Police said they found 87 lbs. of marijuana in luggage on a flight from San Francisco to Nashville International Airport (BNA) on Monday, Fox 17 in Nashville reported.

Drug-sniffing dog Havoc alerted officers to the drugs in two bags. Police identified the 26-year-old California man who brought them because his name was on the luggage tags, according to the report. He said police could check the bags, but said he didn’t have the key for the locks on the bags.

Transportation Security Administration officers opened the bags and found two bales of marijuana, according to the report. Authorities also found 34 grams of THC gummies in the man’s backpack.

Police arrested the man and took him to jail on a felony drug charge. He has bond set at $75,000.

“In addition to FREE masks to fight COVID-19 we also have FREE rides to Metro booking when K-9 Havoc smells you landing at BNA,” Doug Kreulen, president and CEO of Nashville International Airport, tweeted.
