Federal arraignment scheduled for marijuana suspect

MARQUETTE — A Manistique man arrested after allegedly delivering over fifteen pounds of marijuana destined for Wisconsin is set to appear in U.S. District Court next week.

Thirty-seven-year old Jason Gregurash is scheduled for an arraignment next Thursday in Marquette. He was indicted on three federal charges earlier this month, including one count of knowingly or intentionally manufacturing fifty or more marijuana plants.

UPSET detectives say the total of twenty pounds of marijuana seized in the case have a street value of seventy thousand dollars in Wisconsin. Detectives also seized seventy-two plants during a search of Gregurash’s home.
