WCSO Traffic Stop Yields a Thousand Vape Cartridges with THC; Two Arrested

 

                             

     A Williamson County Sheriff’s Office traffic stop last night turned into a multi-thousand dollar drug bust.  WCSO K9 Deputy Hayden Smith stopped a speeding car on Interestate 65 near the Saturn Parkway exit shortly after 8:00 p.m.  The driver was a 17-year-old from Franklin, TN.  The passenger was Francisco Javier Carillo-Rojas, 25, from Shelbyville, TN who admitted he was on probation for a drug charge.  That along with other suspicious indicators led Deputy Smith to deploy his K9 Titus.

     Titus alerted Deputy Smith to the presence of drugs.  A search of the car revealed at least a thousand vape cartridges containing THC, an illegal narcotic; THC wax, methamphetamines, and marijuana.  The street value of the cartridges is about 40-thousand dollars. 

     Carillo-Rojas was arrested and faces several drug charges.  He’s being held on $135,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Williamson County General Sessions Court at 1:00 p.m. on June 23, 2022.  The teenager faces several juvenile charges.
