TMZ reports that Jermaine “Huggy” Hopkins was arrested for buying 200 pounds of weed from an undercover police officer. The drug deal went down in Arizona, where he was arrested and charged with two felony counts of possessing, transporting and trying to sell marijuana.
The Maricopa County police say Hopkins traveled from North Carolina to Arizona to make the transaction on Tuesday. Undercovers set up the drug buy and then after Hopkins purchased the marijuana, they pulled over his SUV and arrested him. There was $100,000 in the car.
They later searched his Arizona apartment and found an additional 100 pounds of weed.
He is being held on $35,000 bond and faces up to five years in prison if convicted. His reason for buying the drugs was he wanted to provide a nice Christmas for his family.
