Crime Tracker

A man faces at least one felony drug charge following the discovery of an estimated 227 sealed baggies of edible THC gummies Wednesday night inside of luggage at Nashville International Airport.

Siddarius Heard, 33, was charged Thursday morning.

According to an arrest affidavit, Airport police “were working an inbound flight from Oakland” when “a narcotics detection K9 alerted to the odor of narcotics coming from two bags” with Heard’s name on them.

Detectives said Heard consented to a search of his luggage where they found the 227 sealed baggies of edible THC gummies, weighing about 45.4 pounds, concealed inside multiple pieces of clothing and a large brown paper bag.

A handwritten note was also discovered inside the bag and it read “Not 4 sale personal only,” police said.

Heard told detectives “he goes to multiple marijuana dispensaries in California due to there being a limit on how many you can buy at each store” and “was planning to bring them back to Atlanta,” the arrest paperwork stated.

Authorities said Heard’s criminal history included multiple drug charges in Georgia.

His bond was set at $25,000.  A court date was set for Friday.
