Pot Bust Near Utica

Posted by wlpo on January 8, 2011

A New Yorker is accused of hauling marijuana through the Illinois Valley.

Santo Palmieri was pulled over Thursday by state police on I-80 near Utica for allegedly following too closely.  After a drug dog search, troopers say they found two duffel bags full of marijuana in Palmieri’s truck.  The total weight of the alleged marijuana is 56 pounds.

Palmieri was arrested for possession of cannabis with the intent to deliver.  He was taken to the county jail.
