Federal agents seized 28 bales of marijuana weighing 710 pounds last week from a self-storage unit in Swartz Creek, Mich., a small Genesee County town not far from Flint.
Authorities filed charges this week against William Lott, a Flint resident who has admitted to renting the space at Bee Safe Self Storage to store marijuana. When agents searched his home, they found another 26 pounds of marijuana.
When Lott appeared in federal court, a judge prohibited Lott from using his medical marijuana card. Lott was then released on bond while his trial is pending.
