A Texas man is in jail accused of hauling 154 pounds of Marijuana. Eunice Police Lt. Varden Guillory says Orlando Reyes, of Houston, rear-ended a vehicle on Hwy. 190 near Tobacco Plus around 8:30 yesterday morning, and he appeared nervous when police showed up. Guillory says officers got permission to search the vehicle and found the bundled marijuana in two suitcases.
Lt. Guillory says the crash didn't do much harm to the car in front of Reyes, but the woman driving was prengant and was taken to a hospital. Reyes was charged with possession with intent to distribute, careless operation with an accident and unlawful presence in the U.S.
