Cleveland County, North Carolina narcotics detectives reportedly seized about 1,800 pounds of marijuana from a house which is said to be the biggest marijuana bust in Cleveland County history. The men allegedly hid the 1.8 million (street value) worth of marijuana in the bed of a pickup truck next to the house in which they were residing. The information related to the bust came from a local confidential informant.
When the police knocked on the door of the house, the two suspects allowed them to conduct a search without a warrant. Neither of the men spoke English; therefore, the men could not be questioned by police immediately after being Mirandized. Both men face felony drug trafficking charges, and deputies are still staging an investigation as to where the marijuana came from.
