Rochester Man Accused of Smuggling Marijuana on Amtrak


A Rochester man is due in court in Galesburg today on charges that he attempted to smuggle more than a pound of marijuana into Illinois on an Amtrak train.

 

Authorities believe 28-year-old Kriss Barton acquired the pot in Las Vegas and was bringing it back to resell it in the Springfield area.

 

Barton is facing two felony counts… the most serious of which could carry a sentence of three to seven years in prison.

 

He was being held over the weekend on $75,000 bond.
