Police have arrested a man after seizing more than 1,500 packages of edible marijuana gummies during a drug investigation that led to South Windsor.
Manchester police said 32-year-old Jeremy Freeman faces drug charges after an investigation that began in February.
According to police, the Eastern Central Narcotics task force, which focuses efforts on the Manchester, South Windsor, Vernon and Glastonbury communities, was looking into reports of a large marijuana operation and learned marijuana was being shipped from California to an address in South Windsor.
With a search warrant, police intercepted one of the packages and found 339 marijuana gummy packets from “Infused Creations.”
Upon further search, police seized another four packages, all containing more marijuana packets. In total, police found 1,588 individual gummy packets, each containing different styles of the edibles. Police said these packages usually sell for around $25 in California and $50 in Connecticut.
Freeman, who police said took the packages and leased the space where they were being delivered, was arrested. He was charged with possession of more than one kilogram of marijuana with intent to sell, operating a drug factory, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
