Three people are facing criminal charges after Killeen police recovered more than 20 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop last week.
The drugs were found after officers with Killeen Police Department’s Organized Crime Unit, K-9 unit and Special Investigations Division conducted a traffic stop in the 5500 block of East Central Texas Expressway on a suspected drug courier vehicle.
In addition to the drugs, police also recovered a “large” amount of money, according to KPD. Police did not disclose the amount.
Police arrested 28-year-old Marcus Vaughn Furr of Killeen, 27-year-old Lester Jerome Sumpter and 26-year-old April Natalie Armenta, both of El Paso.
The three were arraigned Friday by Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin, who set their bail at $50,000 each.
