Task Force Seizes 59.5 Pounds of Marijuana in South Windsor

Ahmad Rahman, 28, of Glastonbury, is facing criminal charges after Members of the East Central Narcotics Task Force arrested him on Friday.

A 28-year-old man is facing charges after the East Central Narcotics Task Force seized 59.5 pounds of marijuana and $1,300 in cash from him in South Windsor on Dec. 14.

Ahmad Rahman, of 246 Cavan Lane, Glastonbury, was arrested by task force members after they received information that Rahman would be leaving a Sullivan Avenue business with "a large tool box full of drugs," according to a press release.

Task force officers, according to the press release, set up surveillance, and waited for Rahman to leave the business in a 2002 Jeep Cherokee. Task force officers conducted a motor vehicle stop, and Rahman was detained while officers investigated.

Rahman was charged with possession of more than 4 oz. of marijuana and possession with intent to sell. He was held on a $250,000 surety bond.

In addition to the marijuana and cash, police also seized the Jeep Cherokee. Officers also conducted a search of Rahman's Glastonbury residence, but no additional contraband was located.

There are "victims" indeed. My advice to my children and to all--if you wanna play, you gotta pay. Why anyone would view this as "a great time" or want to walk around stupified mystifies me.

Brenda... To each, his own. That's the beauty of living in the United States. It's a free country... To a certain extent. I wish you the best, Hugh Yonn

"free country" and the "certain extent" would include "within the law"

Brenda.... The 'war on drugs' is a farce...a total misdirection of time and money.. if a law is wrong, it is wrong. With all of the rhetoric surrounding the marijuana debate, the concept most overlooked: Freedom of the individual. “…over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign.” — from the essay On Liberty by John Stuart Mill If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so. - Thomas Jefferson If a law directed you into a gas chamber, would you obey?
