NORWOOD St. Lawrence County sheriffs Drug Task Force members arrested Cynthia M. Francis, 56, of 287 Cook Rd., Norwood, Tuesday and charged her with third-degree possession of marijuana, a class E felony.
The arrest stems from a federal search warrant conducted at Ms. Franciss home Friday morning as a part of the Operation Problem Child investigation, a multi-agency investigation into drug trafficking that has been going on for several months. During the search of Ms. Franciss home, it is alleged that a sheriffs K-9 located an undisclosed amount of marijuana inside the residence in a safe. Ms. Francis was arrested, processed and issued an appearance ticket returnable to Stockholm Town Court on Oct. 16 at 6 p.m. Task force members were assisted by sheriffs deputies, Massena Police and the Department of Homeland Security.
