A Knoxville man arrested on Jan. 23, while traveling through Bradley County on I-75 with five pounds of marijuana in his vehicle, was a passenger in a car that was pulled over Monday. During a vehicle search detectives found approximately seven pounds of the illegal substance.
The stop came after a detective in the Special Investigations Unit documented the northbound vehicle was over the posted speed limit and was observed changing lanes without using a signal.
A passenger, Shevin Michael Fisher, 31, claimed ownership of the marijuana and 60 hydrocodone pills that were found during a consent search.
Fisher is charged with possession of schedule two and six narcotics for resale.
He is free on bond of $50,000 and is due back in court on June 25.
The driver and other occupants were released without being charged.
