Virginia Beach marijuana bust may lead to major drug ring distribution

Posted on Apr 30, 2010

The arrest of a Virginia Beach woman for marijuana possession may be connected to an operation that distributed over two tons of the drug.  Ashlee Bunn, 29, was arrested last month and charged with possession when she was stopped by Virginia Beach Police.


Police eventually discovered over 700 pounds in her car and residence.  However, that was apparently just the tip of the iceberg.  Informants told police that Bunn had been moving marijuana between Nashville and Virginia Beach, and may have moved as much as 2,000 to 4,000 pounds.


Bunn was splitting her time between Virginia Beach and Nashville, where she works in the business of rap music.  Last month she was busted with a suspected accomplice, Antonio Allen Anderson, who was also charged and is still in jail.  Police also found handguns and $50,000 in cash during a search of her Virginia Beach and Nashville residences.


The Assistant U.S. Attorney claims that Bunn is linked to a major drug ring that operates out of a nightclub located in Virginia Beach.  Bunn waived her right to a hearing and she is in jail pending grand jury action.


Additional accomplices may be busted in Hampton Roads and Nashville as the investigation continues.  It is likely that more arrests will be made in both Virginia and Tennessee.
