BERLIE IS LIVE AT LOGAN WITH HOW
POLICE TRACKED THEM DOWN. NICHOLE: THIS APPEARS TO BE A
CASE OF COOPERATION BETWEEN LAW
ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES ACROSS
STATE LINES AND GOOD,
OLD-FASHIONED PATIENCE. THREE CALIFORNIANS FACED A
MASSACHUSETTS JUDGE THIS
AFTERNOON ON MULTIPLE CHARGES,
INCLUDING TRAFFICKING MARIJUANA.>>ALL THREE SUSPECTS POSSESSED
AN ESTIMATED AMOUNT OF OVER 50
POUNDS OF MARIJUANA. NICHOLE: MORE THAN 50 POUNDS OF
MARIJUANA PER PERSON. STATE TROOPERS WERE TIPPED OFF
BY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS IN
CALIFORNIA ABOUT A LARGE AMOUNT
OF MARIJUANA, IN SEVERAL
SUITCASES, ON AN AMERICAN
AIRLINES FLIGHT, SET TO ARRIVE AT LOGAN SATURDAY EVENING.>>THE TROOPERS THEN MAINTAINED
SURVEILLANCE OF THAT AREA AND
DID OBSERVE THE BAGS IN QUESTION
AND HAD OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE BA
AND PUT IN A SEPARATE AREA. NICHOLE: LADONNA HARDMAN, SAUDIA

APPROACHED BY TROOPERS IN TH
BAGGAGE CLAIM AREA OF TERMINAL

CLEAR PLASTIC BAGS CONTAINING
GREEN VEGETABLE LIKE MATTER
CONSISTENT WITH MARIJUANA. NICHOLE: HARDMAN’S LAWYER SPOKE
