Allegany County man gets probation in marijuana selling case

In 2014, Thomas J. Bromstead, 27, of state route 19 in Caneadea, allegedly possessed and sold more than 25 grams of marijuana. Prosecutors said he sold the pot to an informant working with the Allegany County Sheriff's Department. On March 9, 2016, Bromstead was indicted by a Grand Jury on charges of felony criminal sale of marijuana and a misdemeanor possession charge. In Allegany County court this week, District Attorney Keith Slep consented to a plea deal and Bromstead pleaded guilty to a single count of attempted criminal sale of marijuana, a class A misdemeanor charge. Judge Terry Parker sentenced the Caneadea man to three years probation and directed him to pay restitution in the amount of $375.
