Elmira, New York is in the news today because a traffic stop led police to a home where they found large amounts of pot and a lot of cash. There were also weapons found in the home. This is the second big drug bust for the Elmira police in just two months.
The arrested is Vernon Harris, 38, who was found with 16 pounds of marijuana, $135,000 in cash, and two handguns. It turns out that Harris had been investigated by authorities for two months before the bust took place. He may be facing federal drug and weapons charges.
