Marijuana Bust 

Kennebec County sheriff’s deputies found 51 pounds of processed marijuana, $114,000 in cash and a large amount of packing material, scales, and ledgers when they arrested 54-year-old Robert James and his 53-year-old wife Sandra.

Sheriff Randall Liberty says property found in the house, including a large amount of expensive sports memorabilia and Nazi collectibles, indicates that the couple may have tried to launder their drug proceeds through such purchases.

The couple, who have no criminal history, were being held on $500,000 bail each on charges of aggravated drug trafficking.
