Marijuana Found in Truck; 2 Women Charged

Posted June 1, 2007

— Two woman have been charged with drug trafficking after Nash County authorities found almost 800 pounds of marijuana in a rented cargo truck.

Dianna Renee Watson , 28, of 9265 Bray Road in Bailey, is charged with two counts each of trafficking marijuana and maintaining a vehicle or dwelling for drug trafficking and one county of possession of drug paraphernalia. Stella Lynn Lamm, 30, of 4754 Glendale  Road in Kenly, is charged with one count each of trafficking in marijuana and maintaining a vehicle or dwelling for drug trafficking.

Deputies acting on a tip on Tuesday found about six pounds of marijuana inside a residence on Bray Road. Inside a rented truck parked outside the residence, deputies found another 760 pounds of marijuana packed in large bundles and laced with laundry detergent to disguise the smell, authorities said.

A 13-month-old boy was inside the home when Watson was arrested, authorities said.

The investigation led to Kenly on Thursday, when authorities seized about 26 pounds of marijuana in a Glendale Road residence.

The marijuana seized has an estimated street value of about $1.9 million.

Watson is being held on a $1.5 million bond, while Lamm is being held on a $30,000 bond.

    Where is that stonely baloney from Alaska who has been baked for 40 years and usually writes something along the lines of "it didnt hab no fek on me" - I like his comments! Kids, just say no, or you will end up in a place where it is cold and dark and think you are ok.

    And as for expecting an article on this site to be written in standard English - lots of luck with that - I get the sense that the reporters wouldn't know correct usage or spelling if it bit them on the posterior.

    Long before the comments section was placed on WRAL's website I complained about the frequent typo's in the stories not to mention dead end references that leave the reader confused. One would think that these issues would be less frequent, Especially now that people can comment and make fun of it.
