A North Carolina barbershop owner and a friend are facing federal charges over 800 pounds of marijuana.
WSOC TV reports:
Federal documents about the undercover sting were unsealed this week. Drug enforcement agents said they received a tip that 800 pounds of marijuana seized in El Paso, Texas were headed to Charlotte in September, according to the documents.
Investigators had the 16-bale shipment sent to Charlotte to use in an operation to catch whoever had plans to sell it. Court records show undercover agents worked out a deal to pick up Raymond Boyd’s car at a Wal-Mart on North Tryon Street to transfer the drug.
