Allegany County family arrested on pot-growing charges

ALMOND -A mother, her three grown children and another adult were arrested last week after law enforcement found $70,000 worth of marijuana growing in and around their house, officials said.
A search warrant was executed Sept. 19 at a house on Whitney Valley Road by members of the Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force, with the help of State Police and state Department of Environmental Conservation Police.
Officers seized 35 marijuana plants, all about four feet tall, growing around the property, and 27 more plants growing inside. They also found an unspecified quantity of processed marijuana and cash, officials said.
Arrested were Kathryn M. Moses, 59; her children, Kyle M. Moses, 27; Timothy M. Moses, 30; and Colleen E. Moses, 25; and Stephen R. McIntyre, 27, who is believed to be Colleen Moses' husband or boyfriend. All five suspects lived at the house where the warrant was executed.
They were each charged with a felony count of criminal possession of marijuana and misdemeanor unlawful growing of cannabis. They were released on appearance tickets.
