More than $100,000 in cash seized in Ringgold drug bust
Ringgold police arrested two people and seized more than $100,000 in cash early Sunday morning following a traffic stop along I-75.
According to police chief Dan Bilbrey, the stop occurred about 2 a.m. Cash, drug paraphernalia, and multiple electronic devices were confiscated.
Jesse Robinson, 22, and Terrence Hunt, 29, both of San Francisco, were booked around 5 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 16.
Robinson is being charged with possession of a controlled substance, reckless driving, and speeding, while Hunt is being charged with conspiracy to purchase/possess a controlled substance, and permitting a person to violate.
Both offenders are in custody at the Catoosa County jail with no bond set at this time.
Bilbrey said both suspects have prior drug convictions.
“One of our officers observed a vehicle driving erratically and speeding early this morning, which prompted a traffic stop,” Bilbrey said. “After initiating the stop, the officer detected oddities, or inconsistencies if you will, in the stories that the driver and passenger were giving.”
The duo was traveling in a 2012 Kia Sorento SUV that was registered to Hunt, the passenger.
