A post to Facebook leads to over six pounds of pot

Local

Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple says last week was a big week for marijuana seizers with around 20 pounds confiscated. 

The use of social media to sell drugs is on the rise and the sheriff is worried about kids who use Facebook.

On Wednesday, police say David Leblanc, of Troy, was found with five pounds of marijuana in his car.  On Friday, Kerry Bendel met up with officers and was found to be in possession of a pound of pot.  They say a search of his home netted another six pounds.
