BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - A Buffalo man was arrested Friday after a search warrant was executed by Erie County Sheriffs, resulting in the finding of approximately $40,000 worth of marijuana.

Approximately 18 pounds of marijuana, worth approximately $40,000 on the street, was seized from the vehicle of 30-year-old Andrew Powell. It is believed that quantities of the recovered marijuana were going to be sold in the City of Buffalo, as well as the surrounding suburbs of Erie County.

Powell was charged with criminal possession of marijuana in the first degree.

This is an ongoing investigation. Powell will be taken to the Erie County Holding Center to await arraignment in Buffalo City Court.
