A traffic stop turned into a pot bust in Soddy-Daisy Saturday.
Soddy-Daisy Police Officer Martin Penny stopped a car on U.S. 27, and utilized his K-9, which alerted Penny that the vehicle contained drugs.
Penny found over 26 pounds of marijuana in the vehicle, and arrested Preston Dale Steele, 18, of Cleveland, and Dokota Jake Frase of Hixson.
Police estimate the value of the seized pot to be about $74,000.
Both men have been arrested, and are charged with possession of marijuana for resale and criminal conspiracy.
Larry Kelley was sentenced to life in prison for murdering his ex-wife, Brenda Wilson, outside of a church in 1990.
