A man was arrested from the Pitt-Greenville Airport on Monday morning after trying to take $28,000 and 3.5 ounces of marijuana on a flight from Greenville to Charlotte.
Fatar Weems attempted to bring the drugs on the plane in a suitcase. He has been charged with intent to sell and deliver marijuana. TSA alerted the Sheriff’s Office around 5 a.m. Weems told police the marijuana was for personal use, and that he earned the cash from creating beats for rappers.
The Sheriff’s Office says the money is a result of the drug trade. Weems has been bailed out on a $10,000 bond.
