WASHINGTON COUNTY, TN (WJHL) -

Three Johnson City residents – including a person featured on News Channel 11’s Monday’s Most Wanted -- were arrested Tuesday following a traffic stop for speeding, where Washington County Sheriff’s Office investigators found drugs and a firearm in their vehicle.

According to a WCSO news release, Criminal Interdiction Investigators arrested Robert Lee Hollifield, 27, Lisa Cox, 30, and James Bradley Cox, 32, all of 611 N. North St. No. 2.

James Cox was featured on News Channel 11’s Monday’s Most Wanted back in September 2013.

According to the release, investigators stopped the vehicle for a traffic violation. A K9 unit reportedly sniffed for air, which resulted in the discovery of illegal drugs.

Deputies searched the vehicle and found 8.2 pounds of marijuana in the trunk and Hollified, Lisa Cox and James Cox were all arrested.

A loaded firearm was found in a purse belonging to Lisa Cox, as well as two bottles of illegally diverted prescription pills in her pants.

According to the release, James Cox also gave investigators a false name.

The street value of the marijuana found in the vehicle is approximately $8,200 and the vehicle and cash were seized by deputies.

Hollifield, Lisa Cox and James Cox were all taken to Washington County Detention Center.

Hollifield was charged with speeding and possession of a schedule VI for resale.

Lisa Cox was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of schedules II and IV for resale.

Hollifield and Lisa Cox both reportedly bonded out of the detention center.

James Cox was charged with criminal impersonation and was served with outstanding warrants for a failure to report for 30 days of jail time and a violation of probation.

He will reportedly serve 30 days in jail and then will be held in the detention center on $11,000 bond.

Hollifield, Lisa Cox and James Cox were all scheduled to appear in Sessions Court Tuesday morning for their arraignment.
