GRANBY – A search warrant was executed on the residence of Earl J. Ouderkirk, 42, and Jennifer L. Pollock, 40, in the town of Granby following an investigation conducted by the Oswego County Drug Task Force, the Fulton City Police Department, and the Oswego County Sheriff’s Department.
The couple was arrested on Monday (October 6) after a search warrant conducted on their residence on September 30 resulted in the recovery of 14 marihuana plants and other processed marihuana, police said.
The marihuana had an aggregate weight of over a half a pound. There were also substances that reportedly field-tested positive for psilocybin mushrooms, a hallucinogen, that were found within the residence.
The possession, growing and alleged sale of the marihuana was done out of the residence where Ouderkirk and Pollock lived with three young children between the ages of 9 and 11.
The two were charged with the following:
• Criminal possession of marihuana in the 3rd degree, a class E Felony
• Criminal possession of a controlled substance in the 7th degree, a class A misdemeanor
• Endangering the welfare of a child, a class A misdemeanor
• Unlawfully growing cannabis, a class A misdemeanor
Both Ouderkirk and Pollock were issued appearance tickets for the above listed charges and are scheduled to appear in the Granby Town Court on November 3 at 7 p.m.
The present charges merely represent an accusation that the defendants engaged in such conduct. As a matter of law, defendants are presumed to be innocent of these charges.
