Smell Of Marijuana Leads To Drug Bust, Arrests

ANTIOCH, Tenn. - The smell of marijuana led officers to a big drug bust in Antioch.

Officials said they found five pounds of marijuana, 24 grams of cocaine, and $16,000 in cash.

Police received an anonymous drug complaint, and when they went to the apartment Wednesday in the 600 block of Bell Road, they could smell marijuana from outside.

Authorities got permission to search the apartment and found a large duffle bag stuffed with drugs and the cash hidden in an air vent in the bathroom.

Both Alandis Delk and Ardie Bradley were arrested and charged in the bust.

Delk had just turned 21 the day before, and according to the affidavit, Bradley, set to turn 25 in two weeks, told police he has been getting marijuana and cocaine from Memphis and Atlanta.

No further details were available.
