Delaware County Sheriff’s officials say they sent up a New York State Police airplane September 15, acting on a tip, and found marijuana plots in the Towns of Walton and Harpersfield.

53-year-old William Picinich of Walton is charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance for having Suboxone, unlicensed growing of cannabis and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Picinich has been ordered to appear in Town of Walton Court later this month.

Authorities are still looking for a suspect in the growing of close to 30 large pot plants at a site in the area of Tedle Brook and Quaker Hill Roads in the Town of Harpursfield.

Anyone with information concerning the marijuana grower is asked to call the Delaware County Sheriff’s Tip Hotline at (888) 914-9111.
