Police: 2 pounds of pot found while serving York City warrant
It was simply luck that led officers from York City's Nuisance Abatement Unit and members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force to a city home where they found 2 pounds of pot and a stolen handgun, police said.
They went to 205 Eberts Lane on Nov. 15 to serve a warrant on a person who was not at the house, according to York City Police.
But while there, the officers and task force members smelled a strong odor of marijuana, so they began to question residents Wilhen Scott Rivera Jr., 20, and Lykeem A. Bethune, 20, police said.
Officers seized the 2 pounds of marijuana, along with a Glock .380 handgun that had been reported stolen and a Glock 9 mm handgun, according to police.
Rivera is charged with marijuana possession with intent to deliver and first-degree felony receiving stolen property, police said. He is free on $150,000 bail, according to court records.
Bethune is charged with being a convicted felon in illegal firearm possession, first-degree felony receiving stolen property and simple possession of marijuana, police said. Bethune was taken to York County Prison in lieu of $150,000 bail, court records state.
