BRUNSWICK >> State Police in Brunswick arrested a North Carolina man on drug charges for allegedly trying to ship marijuana to his home state from Brunswick.
Michael G. Borchardt, 71, of Charlotte, N.C., is charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of marijuana for trying to ship marijuana to North Carolina from the UPS store in Brunswick, according to State Police.
UPS employees contacted troopers when they smelled the marihuana in two different packages, according to the report. The troopers responded to the store with a drug canine from the Troy Police Department, who gave a positive alert on the packages.
Troopers say they learned Borchardt was heading to the Albany International Airport to fly home so they advised the Albany County Sheriff’s Deputies to be on the look out for him. The deputies located Borchardt at the airport and turned him over to the troopers.
Borchardt was processed at the Brunswick barracks and arraigned before a local judge. He posted bail and is due back in court on July 9.
