      A marijuana distribution ring in the City of Edinburg has been dismantled by police.Lt. Oscar Trevino told Action 4 News that an officer made a traffic stop on north McColl Road late Tuesday evening.Inside the car he saw a suspicious suitcase.Trevino said the officer called for a K-9 officer---and he was able to detect the marijuana.Trevino said no one in the vehicle wanted to claim ownership of the drugs---so police got a search warrant and searched the trio TMs home located at 2509 Toledo Road in Edinburg.Inside they found more marijuana, a gun, and packaging materials."As for the destination of the marijuana---the investigators are looking at that right now and how long this has been taking place," Trevino said. ~Angie TM, who lives in the neighborhood, told Action 4 News the arrest does not surprise her.She said in recent years her neighborhood has become a haven for illegal activity."A lot of them don't even live here. I think they're just using it as a business, She said.The three suspects in this case are expected to be charged on Thursday with possession of marijuana.
