QUEENSBURY — A Florida man who was caught with hundreds of pounds of marijuana and marijuana-related compounds in Glens Falls earlier this year has been sentenced to jail and probation
Reese W. Darlington, 30, of Homosassa, Florida, pleaded guilty in September to first-degree criminal possession of marijuana, a felony, in connection with an arrest last May 18 in Glens Falls. He agreed to a plea deal that will include a sentence that includes 6 months in Warren County Jail and 5 years on probation, a sentence that Warren County Judge John Hall imposed last week.
Darlington’s plea came in connection with the seizure of 60 pounds of marijuana seeds, six one-gallon jugs of liquid concentrated cannabis and 109 pounds of “CBD powder,” which is a powder containing the active compound in marijuana, outside an unidentified shipping business in Glens Falls, according to Glens Falls Police.
The marijuana seeds and concentrated cannabis are illegal under New York law, while the CBD powder is federally prohibited.
The materials were shipped to Glens Falls for reasons that police were unable to determine, as Darlington would not discuss the matter with police when he was arrested.
Police said Darlington was found to have flown from California to Albany, rented a vehicle to retrieve the illegal drugs and was loading up packages outside the shipping business when police arrested him.
