NC Woman Ran $3m Pot Ring Out of Saratoga County
Wilton — Federal authorities have charged a North Carolina woman with sending an estimated $3 million in marijuana from Canada to a Wilton truck stop.
The Daily Gazette of Schenectady reports 34-year-old Sarah Inman Shafer was arrested last week in North Carolina.
She is charged with a federal count of conspiracy to distribute marijuana.
Authorities say between May 2008 and February 2009, Shafer arranged for four separate shipments of pot to be delivered from Vancouver, British Columbia to a truck stop in Wilton. Investigators say the marijuana was handed-off in the parking lot to couriers who took the shipments to other destinations.
