The home of two brothers was the scene of a raid that turned up thousands of dollars worth of marijuana, cash, drug paraphernalia and large knives hidden throughout, according to Middletown Police

On Nov. 22 at 6:15 p.m., narcotics and major crimes unit officers used a search warrant to search the home of Stephen Hunter, 29, and Nicholas M. Hunter, 28, both of 41 Poinsettia Street.

A search of the home revealed a host of pot in various forms with a street value of nearly $3,000 worth of marijuana and $2,220 in cash, a digital scale, liquid THC, a marijuana resin, marijuana brownies, a grinder, vaporizer, tinfoil with resin and a large knife.  

In the basement, the report says, officers found a bag of marijuana in a video storage case and two glass pot bongs; cash hiding in a grill outside and numerous glass smoking pipes throughout their house. 

Police say both men's phones had text messages from people trying to buy pot from them and Nicholas's had a text from a woman who shared the home with them that tried to buy a quarter-ounces of marijuana earlier. 

At headquarters, the report says, Stephen said his brother was the one selling drugs, then later said he was acting as a middle man for his brother. Stephen has a conviction for sale of marijuana in New Hampshire, according to officers.

Both were charged with possession of more than 4 ounces of marijuana, use of drug paraphernalia and illegal sale of drugs and released on a promise to appear in Middletown Superior Court on Jan. 23 at 10 a.m.

The city wants to open a medical cannabis grow facility and NORA wants to make cannafood. I guess these guys are getting arrested for doing THE SAME THING because the city isn't profiting off them.
