Uhaul bust
Three residents of Hendersonville, North Carolina were arrested recently following a traffic stop on Interstate 40 in Cocke County. The Tennessee Highway Patrol says it received a report that there was a U-Haul at the westbound Welcome Center near the 446 mile marker, with children in the enclosed cargo area. When the rental truck was stopped a short later, traveling westbound, troopers found three children under the age of eight, in the enclosed cargo area of the truck, and three adults in the cab area of the truck. A further search of the truck revealed methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, but law officers say there were no child seats in the truck. All three adults are charged with three counts of child endangerment. The driver, Eric Larue, 38, is charged also with no drivers license, three counts violation of the child restraint law, and failure to maintain his lane of travel. Willie Green, Jr, 40, is charged with possession of marijuana, and Lakiza Robinson-Williams, 40, is charged with possession of methamphetamine and heroin as well as drug paraphernalia. Bonds for the trio were set by Cocke County General Sessions Judge Brad Davidson. Robinson-Williams is free on a $15,000 bond however Green and Larue remain in custody on bonds of $8,000 and $7,500 respectively.
