TUPELO - A Lee County couple was arrested last week after law enforcement found more than a pound of marijuana in their apartment.
Officers with the North Mississippi Narcotics Unit and the Lee County Sheriff's Office SWAT team executed a search warrant June 13 on a Mitchell Road Tupelo apartment. In addition to the drugs, agents seized two firearms and $3,651 in cash.
Notorious "TeeKay" Kennedy, 23, of 126 Willow St., Shannon; and Destiny Brand, 21, of 3545 Mitchell Road, Tupelo, were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. The charges will be enhanced because of the weapons.
They were booked into the Lee County Jail June 13 around 9 a.m. Brand was released later the same day after posting a $7,500 bond. Kennedy was released the following afternoon on a $8,500 bond.
