Charges have been filed against a woman who is accused of growing marijuana in her home, in a case developed by New Florence police last fall while they were assisting state police in a counterfeiting investigation.
Stefanee R. Wynn of 664 Washington St., Bolivar, is facing charges of possession of a controlled substance, manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and disorderly conduct.
She was charged after the state police laboratory recently confirmed that material confiscated by police from Wynn’s residence on Sept. 3 was marijuana.
The items were retrieved from Wynn’s former residence, a mobile home along Lear Street in Bolivar.
According to an affidavit of probable cause filed before Senior District Judge Robert Scott by New Florence officer Joshua Vranich, state police and Vranich went to Wynn’s to investigate an unrelated counterfeiting complaint.
She was not at home, but officers noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the residence, along with marijuana seeds strewn around the front porch, Vranic wrote in an affidavit of probable cause.
Vranic subsequently obtained a search warrant, and police confiscated three large marijuana plants that contained more than 2 pounds of marijuana, multiple marijuana seeds, suspected marijuana smoking pipes and gardening items, the affidavit said.
Wynn was arraigned on Saturday before Scott and released after posting $10,000 bond.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 10 before Ligonier District Judge Denise Snyder Thiel.
No charges resulted from the counterfeit investigation.
