NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Hundreds of baggies of potent edible THC gummies are discovered inside luggage at Nashville International Airport.
K9 were alerted to the odor of raw marijuana coming from two bags which arrived on a flight on the way from Oakland to Atlanta at around 8 p.m. Wednesday night, according to Metro Nashville police. Airport detectives made contact with the owner of the luggage, 33-year-old Siddarius Heard.
Detectives asked Heard if he had any narcotics in his bags and he reportedly said, "there are some gummies." Heard gave consent to search the bags after they asked permission.
Inside one piece of luggage, concealed by multiple pieces of clothing and a brown paper bag, were 155 baggies of gummies, police said. And 72 baggies of gummies were discovered in a duffel bag.
Police say the 227 packages of multiple-flavored sour ring and sour strip gummies weighed just over 45 lbs. Their label stated the product was made with 98 percent THC oil.
Heard told police he purchased the edibles from several dispensaries in California.
Heard, who has multiple drug charges out of Georgia, is being held in the Davidson County Jail for possession of marijuana with intent to sell. His bond is set at $25,000.
