An Otsego County man and woman were arrested Friday for having more than 13 pounds of marijuana, according to a recent release from the Otsego County Sheriff’s Department.

Michael Deluca, 55, of Pittsfield, and Sallie Lewis Jacoby, 62, of Morris, were each charged with first-degree criminal possession of marijuana, a felony, according to the release.

Sheriff’s Office investigators recently received information that Jacoby had marijuana at her town of Morris residence, the release said. After investigating, deputies and investigators found Deluca and a bedroom full of freshly cut marijuana in Jacoby’s mobile home.

The marijuana seized by deputies and investigators weighed nearly 13 pounds after drying, the release said.

Deluca and Jacoby surrendered themselves and were arrested by investigators, the release said. They were arraigned by Morris Judge Joseph Tyson, Jr and are scheduled to reappear later this month. If convicted, they each face up to five-and-a-half years in prison.

District Attorney John M. Muehl and ADA Paul Elkan are prosecuting the case, according to the release.
