Officers discovered 10 boxes in holiday wrap with 71 pounds of marijuana, 360 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) pills and a pound of hash oil.
Yates is scheduled to appear in court next week after he was slapped with second-degree felony charges of possession and drug trafficking. If convicted he could face a $30,000 fine and 16 years in prison.
Officers arrived at the home of 52-year-old Helen Jackson and her husband, who were screaming at one another. The husband said he had been trying to cook the turkey when the fight broke out.
Jackson is accused of holding a knife to her husband’s throat, which she initially denied. She later admitted to taking the blade from her husband as he was using it to carve the turkey.
There are currently no indicators as to whether the argument started because he was about to deep fry the turkey while still frozen, or if he made a comment about the president-elect of the United States.
