Many Pennsylvania State University students will be looking for new marijuana sources after six current or former students are among seven people charged with being part of a million-dollar marijuana selling operation. According to Attorney General Tom Corbett, Penn State student Paul Spara, 23, of Ruffs Dale, Pa., bought more than 400 pounds of marijuana from Jason Remington of Sauquoit, N.Y., and supplied it to other students. Prosecutors said the drugs were originally shipped from a Canadian Indian reservation to Remington in upstate New York. Investigators say Spara bought 10 to 50 pounds of marijuana a week from Remington, and would then sell some to fraternity members, who in turn sold to other students on campus.
Spara is charged with 13 counts of possession with intent to deliver while Remington faces four counts. They both face conspiracy and other charges. Other students charged included Sanjay Deendyal, 21, of Yardley, Pa., and Evan Stiekman, 22, of Hamden, Conn. Former Penn State students charged were Michael Presogna, 24, of State College, and Evan Mossman, 23, who is currently already in state prison.
