TICONDEROGA -- Police seized nearly 75 pounds of marijuana and arrested two women on felony drug charges after they tried to avoid a traffic stop on Friday morning, according to the Ticonderoga Police Department.
Kelsey A. Jackson, 22, of Akwesasne, was driving with passenger Sheyenne Smoke, 21, of Hogansburg, when they came across a traffic safety checkpoint in Ticonderoga conducted by the New York State Police, the Essex County Sheriff's Department and the U.S. Border Patrol.
Jackson made a sudden U-turn before the checkpoint around 10:40 a.m. and then led Ticonderoga police on a two-mile pursuit, police said.
Once stopped, police searched the vehicle and found 74.9 pounds of marijuana vacuum sealed and packed into two oversized duffle bags.
Police said the street value of that marijuana is estimated to be approximately $250,000.
A preliminary investigation indicated that the marijuana was not for local distribution, police said.
Jackson was charged with first-degree criminal possession of marijuana, a felony, and several traffic offenses, including third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, improper U-turn, insufficient turn signal and failure to comply with an emergency vehicle.
Smoke was charged with first-degree criminal possession of marijuana, a felony.
Both Jackson and Smoke were arraigned in the Ticonderoga Town Court and sent to Essex County Jail for lack of $100,000 cash bail or $200,000 bail bond.
They are scheduled to appear in court again on May 4.

All the TI PD did was pursue the car once it made the u-turn. The border patrol and NYSP were in charge. After all its a little more than a j-walker. I love how people try to make the TiPD out to be super cops when in fact, whenever anything more than a parking ticket goes down, they have to hide and watch the real cops do the job.

thing is they were caught in ti, so that ti gets the credit for the bust.
IF it was a good vehicle, then the ti pd can request possession of that vehicle. That will be another vehicle that they dont have to spend money on.

I guess the potheads only smoke at home. Not while they are driving? I think not. No difference between Driving While Intoxicated or Driving While Impaired (by drugs or otherwise). Yes, get the drunks off the road...AND the impaired too.

I work at the local Dunkin Donuts, most of these cops are great guys. Wish I could be one but you need at least a GED. They also say I am overweight, too many donuts I guess.

All the TiPD is good for is eating doughnuts and sucking coffee. They are worthless and should get shot. None of them are good enough for a college degree, none of them even have one. Just another portion of the uneducated of Redneck-Ville, NY.
