A 53-year-old Montgomery man has been charged with growing pot in his home. An anonymous tip led police to 226 Beamer Road where they arrested Stephen O?Reilly. Police say they found pot growing in the basement and drying in the attic. Montgomery police made the pot bust Thursday using the joint forces of the New York State Aviation unit and the Orange County Sheriff's canine unit. O'Reilly has been charged with criminal possession of marijuana in the second degree, growing without a license and endangering the welfare of a child. He is being held at Orange County Jail on $15,000 bail.
