57-year-old William Kamholtz of Frewsburg, New York, was arrested in September after law enforcement officials saw him harvest his marijuana crop, and then stopped his truck and found a duffel bag with suspected marijuana in it, according to court papers.
Authorities say they had been watching a field with about 50 marijuana plants in it for some time before they arrested Kamholtz.
He’s in McKean County Jail on $75,000 bail, but is also facing charges in Chautauqua County.
He is accused of having more than seven pounds of marijuana in his house, along with a marijuana drying shed, growing equipment and several firearms. His wife, 53-year-old Susan Kamholtz, is also charged in connection to the growing operation in Frewsburg.
