CORTLAND – Tadd Reiter is expected to ask a judge to reduce his $150,000 bond next week after police said they found six pounds of marijuana and more than 50 marijuana plants at his Cortland property.
Reiter, 31, of the 200 block of North Somonauk Road, was arrested Wednesday on allegations he had marijuana, marijuana plants, a scale, multiple plastic bags and a blue pipe both in his home and the RV camper next to the home, court records show. The total estimated value of the drugs is $60,000, according to court records.
Reiter admitted to police in an interview that all the marijuana was his, also saying he would sell the marijuana for $20 a gram, court records show.
His bond was set Thursday at $150,000, and he's next due in court Tuesday. He was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, unlawful possession of marijuana, unlawful production of marijuana plants and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
The most serious charge Reiter faces, unlawful possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, is typically punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
Gerald M. Bute, 44, also of the 200 block of North Somonauk Road, was also arrested Wednesday at Reiter's home. He was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. Bute was released from jail on his own recognizance Thursday.
