A man and woman from Kansas City, Missouri were arrested on multiple charges by Eufaula police following a recent traffic stop on U.S. 69.
Tarrin Chrishon Lang and Brandi Renee Burton will appear in court at 9 a.m., Nov. 1 for a pre-preliminary hearing conference.
They were arrested on Oct. 1 at about 5:40 p.m.
Lang, 19, was charged with distribution of a controlled dangerous substance and possession with intent to distribute; possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, two counts of falsely impersonating another to create liability and one count of conspiracy.
Burton was charged with distribution of a controlled dangerous substance and possession with intent to dis-tribute; possession of a firearm during commission of a felony; obstructing an officer and conspiracy.
During an initial court appearance, bond was set at $75,000 for each suspect.
Associate District Judge Brendon Bridges entered not guilty pleas on their behalf.
Police Sergeant J. Wittmer stated he stopped a vehicle traveling north on 69 and when he was beside the vehicle could smell a strong odor of marijuana.
Burton, who was driving, said she had several pounds of marijuana hidden inside her luggage, according to Wittmer.
“The marijuana was packaged for illegal distribution,” he said.
When questioned by Wittmer, Lang, a passenger, gave a false name and age to impersonate a minor.
Lang, 19, was later identified as an adult and a convicted felon, according to the police report.
During a search of the vehicle, police found a loaded firearm in the glove box and a backpack with over $18,000 in cash.
Wittmer said the illegal marijuana, cash and vehicle were seized.
