CHAMPLAIN — A Poughkeepsie man was arrested by local deputies Easter day for allegedly attempting to cross the Champlain border with almost 18 pounds of marijuana hidden inside his car.
According to the Clinton County Sheriff's Department, Robert A. Awad was arrested Sunday when Customs and Border Protection officers found 17.7 pounds of marijuana in his vehicle as he attempted to cross the Champlain Port of Entry.
The 22-year-old was remanded to the Clinton County Jail after his arrest, but was released Tuesday after posting $5,000 cash bail.
He will reappear in court at a later date to face the felony drug charge.
