Teen charged after bus stopped, drugs found


JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) — A speeding stop of a Greyhound bus has resulted in a drug bust.

The Jackson Sun reported a state trooper stopped the bus along Interstate 40 in Haywood County shortly after noon on Wednesday.

While the trooper wrote the driver a ticket, a Jackson police officer walked his drug dog around the outside of the bus and it alerted at a spot along the luggage bay.

The patrol said the bag belonged to 18-year-old Ariel Rivas. He granted permission for a search and police said they found about 1 kilogram of methamphetamine, 4 ounces of cocaine and between 7 and 10 pounds of marijuana.

Rivas was arrested on drug charges. The bus driver was issued a warning citation for speeding.
