Mother, son found with cannabis

A Bermuda-bound mother and son have been arrested in North Carolina after they were found with 24 pounds of cannabis in their luggage.

Karen Sullivan, 42, and Kory Barley, 25, both from Davidson County, were arrested at Charlotte Douglass International Airport on Sunday morning.

According to US media reports, the pair were en route to Bermuda with a connection in Atlanta.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police stated that officers responded to a report of suspicious packages being discovered inside x-rayed luggage at the airport.

The luggage, which had been checked in at the ticket counter by the mother and son, were found to contain several black, rectangular-shaped packages of cannabis.

The packages had been laid flat in the bottom of the luggage and “artfully concealed” inside the luggage lining, covered with black plastic.

The pair were arrested, and as of yesterday were being held in the Mecklenburg County Jail facing charges of trafficking marijuana and possession with the intent to deliver.

Karen Sullivan, 42, and her 25-year-old son Korey Braley.
