A package with synthetic marijuana was found at the Marcy Correctional Facility and it was hidden in a canned good.
An officer became suspicious of several cans of food whose weight didn’t seem correct. He opened three cans and found a balloon in each one. The balloons contained a green leafy substance and tested positive for synthetic marijuana also known as k2.
The contraband was placed into evidence. The 65-year-old inmate is serving a three-year sentence after being convicted of robbery. He now faces disciplinary charges. The package was mailed from downstate.
