Tran was arrested in April 2017 as part of a joint investigation between the sheriff’s office and the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics. Tran was reportedly leaving a Pecan Way residence in a motor vehicle when agents stopped him and discovered 10 pounds of marijuana in the vehicle. He was charged with trafficking a schedule I drug in a church zone.

After turning himself in Tuesday, Tran was released on the $100,000 bond that had previously been posted.
