Falls man pleads not guilty to receiving pot shipment

LOCKPORT – A man who was arrested outside a Niagara Falls post office after he claimed a five-pound package of marijuana was arraigned Friday in Niagara County Court.

Michael J. Crumpton, 22, of 21st Street, pleaded not guilty to second-degree criminal possession of marijuana.

Assistant District Attorney Theresa L. Prezioso said the package was damaged in transit, and postal inspectors were able to see what it contained. They called Falls detectives, who busted Crumpton outside the Main Street post office on the afternoon of Dec. 6.
