A North Carolina man will be spending the next 60 months in federal prison after a judge sentenced him for getting caught with more than 1,000 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop in Jasper County.
Enar David Zuniga pleaded guilty on Aug. 29, 2012, to possession with intent to distribute more than 100 kilograms of marijuana.
According to information presented in court, on June 18, 2012, Zuniga was stopped by a Texas Highway Patrol trooper in Jasper County, Texas for a seatbelt violation. During the stop, Zuniga appeared nervous and his answers to the trooper's questions were suspicious. Zuniga opened the back of the Isuzu truck and gave the trooper permission to search the vehicle's contents. The trooper inspected the front of the truck and suspected a hidden compartment. A K-9 unit arrived and alerted to the back of the truck where 1,064 pounds of marijuana was discovered. Zuniga was indicted on June 21, 2012 and charged with federal drug trafficking crimes.
