GROTON, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say they’ve busted up a central New York marijuana ring that was supplying large of amounts of pot to the Ithaca area.

State police say a narcotics task force on Tuesday raided a home in the Tompkins County town of Groton and a storage facility in the neighboring town of Dryden as part of a five-month investigation into marijuana trafficking around Ithaca.

Officials say they seized about 67 pounds of processed marijuana, several thousand dollars in cash, a stolen 9mm pistol loaded with a high-capacity magazine and drug scales.

Troopers say the charges against a 35-year-old man living at the Groton home and a 37-year-old man from nearby Cortland include criminal possession of marijuana and criminal possession of a weapon.

Both men are being held Thursday in Tompkins County Jail with no bail.
