Makayla Garrett caught with 14 pounds of marijuana in suitcase at Memphis International Airport


27-year-old Makayla Garrett was caught with marijuana at the Memphis International Airport on May 7th. Officers were randomly scanning luggage when their k-9 gave a positive alert on a large red suitcase indicating the smell of narcotics. Officers observed Garrett grabbing the bag from a baggage belt. Officers then spoke with Garrett, asking if there was a reason the K-9 unit would alert her bag, and she stated that she had no idea why they were alerted. She then consented to a search of her bag, which resulted in two vacuum-sealed bags of green substance, which tested positive for THC, weighing in at 14.66 pounds. Garrett was then taken into custody for possession of a controlled substance.


Makayla Garrett was booked into the Shelby County Jail on May 7th, charged with possession of a controlled substance. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $10,000.
