A man has been arrested at a Tennessee airport with over 80 pounds of marijuana disguised as Christmas gifts, WTVC-TV reports.
Somphone Temmeraj, 57, was arrested with more than 80 pounds of marijuana disguised as Christmas gifts at Nashville International Airport.
Officials said that both an officer and a K-9 unit noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the man’s bags. He allowed them to search the bags, which showed several items appearing to be Christmas gifts.
However, inside the “gifts,” officers found vacuum-sealed bags of marijuana weighing 84 pounds. He was arrested and booked into jail, but bonded out Tuesday morning.
