Major Pot Bust Near Utica

Posted by wlpo on December 27, 2010

The latest large pot bust in the area involves a motor home.

A motor home driven by Jay McMaster of California was pulled over Sunday afternoon headed east bound on Interstate 80 just past Utica.  The Utica canine unit was called in and pointed towards drugs being in the rear of the motor home.  Investigators then did a search and allegedly found five bags of cannabis hidden under a bed and another inside a closet.  The total weight of the alleged cannabis was 128 pounds.

McMaster and his passenger Shawn McDonald of New York were both arrested for possession of more than five thousand grams of cannabis with intent to deliver.  Both were taken to the county jail.

Their bond will be set in court Tuesday morning.
