TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville Police Department seized a large amount of drugs and made an arrest after a months-long investigation into possible drug trafficking.
The arrest came after a traffic stop in Jefferson County on Aug. 19, in which detectives said he was driving around with a large amount of marijuana and THC gummies. Investigators believe Bishop was coming back to his home in Grayson Valley after a trip across the country where he made several stops to buy the drugs.
Police conducted a subsequent search of Bishop’s Birmingham home and found more drugs. Detectives with the Trussville Police Department had been investigating Bishop since May of this year, according to police.
In all, more than 78 pounds of marijuana, 3,334 packs of THC gummies, 750 THC chewables packages, 107 THC vape cartridges, 499 containers of THC wax, and multiple bottles of liquid THC were seized during the investigation.
Members of the Hoover Police Department and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the investigation.
Bishop was booked into the Jefferson County Jail on bonds totaling $216,000.
