A marijuana growing operation hidden in an 18-wheeler near Rio Vista was disrupted Thursday by Johnson County sheriff's deputies.
“The trailer was well hidden behind a shed in a grove of trees and was covered with camouflaged tarps,” Lt. Tim Jones said. “The trailer was not visible from any angle and was accessed by way of a concealed door beside a shed.”
Images from one of the new video cameras that attach to a police officer's shirt or glasses are what reportedly cleared a TCU football player of a marijuana possession charge.
The charge against wide receiver Brandon Carter, 21, was dismissed Tuesday, court records show.
He was arrested April 22 after Fort Worth police pulled over a car he was driving because of on an outstanding warrant on the car's owner, Alexis Harris, who was in the passenger seat and was letting him drive.
Staff writer Deanna Boyd reports that Carter’s attorney, Michael Schneider, said the charge was dismissed after police body camera videos of the traffic stop showed that the marijuana was in Harris’ purse, not in Carter’s possession.
“It was really a situation where Brandon was in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Schneider said.
A 15-year-old student at Byron Nelson High School faces drug charges after authorities say he gave a marijuana-laced brownie to a classmate, a 17-year-old girl, who became unconscious and had to be rushed to a hospital, Trophy Club police said Tuesday.
The boy faces a charge of delinquent conduct/delivery of marijuana, Trophy Club police commander Lee Delk said on Tuesday.
