Undercover Pot Bust In Red Bank

An undercover operation in Red Bank nets thousands of dollars worth of pot.

Investigators seized four pounds of pot, other narcotics and guns from a house on Englewood Avenue in North Chattanooga.  Detectives searched the house after an undercover officer bought marijuana from the dealers at the Red Bank BiLo.

Sgt. Dan Knight says, "It's some high dollar pot grown in California and shipped in to here."

High dollar and high aroma.  The red bank police department reeks of marijuana.  Detectives arrested two college students,  22 year old Michael Persinger and 23 year old Konstantine Xoinis.  The men are charged with possession with the intent to resale.  Investigators say Persinger is the ring leader of the operation here.  The investigation continues.
