Police say Charles DeYoung, from Ulster County, traveled to the West Coast, packed the marijuana into a container and hired shipping company ABF to deliver the load to Montgomery.
According to investigators, DeYoung planned to pick up the shipment from a warehouse on Bracken Road, but ABF workers became suspicious and called authorities.
