Traffic stop uncovers more than 1,000 cigars stuffed with marijuana
A trunk full of marijuana-stuffed cigars has landed a Knoxville woman in trouble with the law after a stop for speeding along Interstate 75. The Campbell County Sheriff's office says it made a large drug seizure and arrest after the traffic stop Saturday at the 151 mile marker.
Deputies say they discovered 1,011 clear glass tubes filled with cigars that had been stuffed with marijuana. The tubes were organized in large tubes in the car's trunk. Deputies say they also found prescription medication and drug paraphernalia in the car.
Along with her speeding charge, driver Veronica Adkisson faces charges of felony possession of marijuana for resale, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a schedule II controlled substance.
