Pembroke Pines Man Busted for Driving Truck With Three Tons of Marijuana
Eric Emmanuel, a 35-year-old man from Pembroke Pines, is being charged in what's said to be the biggest marijuana bust in Pennsylvania history. He and Stanley Baptiste, of Winter Garden, were arrested this weekend on a stretch of freeway east of the state capital, Harrisburg. Police found 6,500 pounds of marijuana in the truck, with a street value of $10 - $25 million.
According to this article in today's Morning Call, the two were reaching the end of a cross-country pot pilgrimage that had started in California.
It's not clear how long Emmanuel has lived in South Florida. There's no listing of a telephone number. Nor does he have a record in Broward or Miami-Dade.
