Father and son duo sentenced to jail for hauling drugs into York County

YORK – A father and son duo from California charged with hauling drugs into York County after they were stopped at a ruse check point on Interstate 80, have been given jail time and hefty fines/restitution orders.

James J. Glass, 39, and James M. Glass, 66, were sentenced by Judge James Stecker in York County District Court.

According to court documents, deputies with the York County Sheriff’s Department were conducting a ruse check-point at the Bradshaw exit. Following strange driving patterns at that exit, deputies stopped the Glass vehicle.

Deputies noticed odd behavior when the older Glass said they were heading to a town that started with “Fort” and it might be in Nebraska or Iowa, he didn’t know. The two made different statements about their travel plans and appeared to be extremely nervous.

Loki, a canine deputy with the sheriff’s department, was deployed and alerted to the smell of controlled substances.

A search of the vehicle was conducted.

According to court documents, deputies found eight pounds of marijuana, 117 THC concentrate cartridges, 908 grams of THC wax, 32 containers of THC wax and $8,880 in cash.

Each was initially charged with two counts of delivery of a controlled substance, both Class 2A felonies; possession of more than one pound of marijuana, a Class 4 felony; and having no drug tax stamp, a Class 4 felony.

Both pleaded not guilty.

Later, as part of a plea agreement, their charges were amended to one count each of possession of more than a pound of marijuana, a Class 4 felony. The rest of their charges were dismissed.

This week, each was sentenced to a term of 30 days in jail with credit for two days already served. They each were also ordered to pay fines/restitution of $4,000.
