North Texas' infamous stretch of the ‘Mary Jane Highway’ is again the scene of…wait for it…a traffic stop that results in a drug bust.
Last Wednesday, just after 12:30 pm, a Wichita County Sheriff’s deputy made the stop on U.S 287 at Johnson Road near Iowa Park. A search of the vehicle uncovered 37 pounds of marijuana.
49-year-old Byron Anthony Byrnes of Riverview, Florida was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana over 5 pounds and under 50 pounds. Byrnes remained in the Wichita County Jail as of Monday afternoon. He’s held on a $20,000 bond.
