SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities say a San Francisco dentist was busted in a New York City drug sting and accused of running a cross-country marijuana smuggling operation.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1Mmqn86) Friday that 63-year-old Jerome Weitz was arrested in Yonkers, N.Y., Wednesday afternoon in possession of more than $10,000 cash and on his way to receive payment for a large shipment of marijuana.

Prosecutors say Weitz was being held on $75,000 bail in a New York City jail Thursday, charged with criminal sale of marijuana and conspiracy. His lawyer was not immediately available for comment Friday.
