(AP) Cops: Video of pot plants leads to Conn. arrest
A Connecticut man faces drug charges after police say he posted a YouTube video of himself giving a tour of his marijuana “garden.”
Police in the shoreline town of Clinton arrested 46-year-old William Bradley on Monday following a six-month investigation.
In the video, a man identifying himself as Bradley welcomes people to his garden and says he’s growing marijuana because he has terminal cancer. He also solicits donations, saying he wants to give away marijuana to people who need it for medical reasons.
Police say they seized more than two pounds of marijuana and other drugs Monday from a storage unit he used.
Bradley was charged with drug crimes and detained on $5,000 bail. He’s to be arraigned in state court Tuesday. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
