RALEIGH — Police charged a man with two counts of trafficking in marijuana late Wednesday, saying he had approximately 105 pounds of the plant.
By Thursday morning, however, Jimmy Viet Tran, 33, had posted a bond that Wake County magistrates set at $250,000, and it appeared from Cobb County, Ga., tax records that the address he gave Raleigh police are vacant lots.
According to an arrest warrant served on Tran shortly after 10:30 p.m., he had in his possession and was transporting the marijuana.
An online arrest report shows that Tran was charged at 10 p.m. at the police departments Downtown District station.
Neither file indicates, however, how Tran came to officers attention or how he was traveling.
The address that police listed for Tran on the arrest warrant 433 Terrell Mill Road just outside the city of Marietta is vacant building lots, according to Cobb County online tax records. Next door, however, at 443 is a $650,000 home owned by a Thien C. Tran.
