Deputies discover 83 pounds of marijuana in traffic stop

WICHITA FALLS, TX (TNN) - Wichita County Sheriff Deputies have released information on another large drug bust that happened on the US-287 drug superhighway in Wichita County.

In a probable cause affidavit released this week, Deputies say they pulled over a 2018 Volkswagen Passat on 287 near Burnett Ranch Road on February 11 for following too close.

The car was also traveling in the left (fast) lane of travel for an extended period.

Deputies say a K9 officer alerted to the car after the driver refused permission to search. This led to a probable cause search where deputies found 69 packages of marijuana, totaling 82.8 pounds including the packaging.

27-year-old Jerry Trent Lynch Harris of California has been charged with Possession of Marijuana over 50 pounds, a 2nd-degree felony. He has since bonded out of the Wichita County jail.
