New York Man Sentenced To Probation For Marijuana Trafficking

Christopher Dunn, 49, of Queens, New York, was sentenced to four years of probation by Chief District Court Judge Robert Molloy on his conviction of possession with intent to distribute 1.37 kilograms of marijuana, according to a release from U.S. Attorney Delia L. Smith. Molloy also reportedly ordered Dunn to pay a $2,000 fine, and a $100 special assessment.

Prosecutors alleged at trial that on February 11, 2021, Dunn arrived at the Cyril E. King airport a flight from JFK New York. While conducting flight inspections, Customs and Border Protection officers reportedly discovered a green leafy substance in Dunn’s carry-on luggage. Customs officers then escorted Dunn to secondary inspection where they searched Dunn’s carry-on bags and reportedly discovered three vacuum-sealed bags of marijuana weighing about 1.37 kilograms.
