A LeRoy man was charged Monday in connection with the seizure of 20 mature marijuana plants from a field off Neid Road.
Thomas M. "Marty" Ryan III, 29, of Neid Road, was charged with a felony count of criminal possession of marijuana. He was sent to the Genesee County Jail in lieu of $7,500 bail following arraignment.
Last Friday, sheriff's deputies and Batavia police seized the plants, which officials said yielded 60 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $20,000. The New York State Police Aviation Unit helicopter helped direct officers to the scene.
