Three arrested on pot charges in Farmington
FARMINGTON – Three people were arrested after police seized more than a pound of marijuana, cash, plants and a car in two separate and unrelated incidents within 24 hours of each other.
On Monday, officers obtained a warrant to search 279 Hornetown Road, where police allegedly discovered about a quarter pound of marijuana, $280 in cash and drug paraphernalia in a 1999 Nissan Altima.
As a result, Trask Hefler, 20, of 279 Hornetown Road, was charged with possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute while Aiyla Griffin, 19, of 37 Pleasant View Circle, Dover, was charged with possession of a controlled drug.
Additionally, police are attempting to obtain the Altima, which is owned by Hefler, through U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency's asset forfeiture program.
On Tuesday afternoon, police obtained a second warrant for a home at 36 Paulson Road, where they allegedly found a variety of marijuana plants at different stages of maturity, items to help grow the plants and jars filled with marijuana. The total street value of the drugs seized is estimated to be about $3,000, according to police.
As a result, Richard Priolo, 43, of 36 Paulson Road, was charged with the manufacture of a controlled drug and the sale of a controlled drug.
Priolo, who refused bail, was scheduled to be arraigned at 11:30 a.m. in Rochester District Court while both Hefler and Griffin were released on cash bail and are scheduled to appear for an arraignment in Rochester District Court Nov. 6.
