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.

    End of month pay day is coming /Big Bucks will be available in the area.

    There's an old song that was sung by Roger Miller that had the words --- Dang me, They oughta take a rope and hang me --

    Sometimes maybe, if that would happen in the justice system, there wouldn't be 3 healthy looking people out on the streets selling dope to the dopers. And go out looking for jobs instead of living off the weakness of the dopers.

    Good job KPD---Keep it up.
