A Butler County woman was charged today with trafficking in as much as 100 pounds of marijuana a year since 2009.

According to a Pennsylvania grand jury, Candice Kelly, 64, of Sarver, received three shipments of 30 to 40 pounds of pot a year, which she sold for $3,400 a pound, according to the state attorney general's office.

State agents and troopers executing a search warrant at her house said they seized $392,000 and 64 pounds of pot, hashish and hallucinogenic mushrooms.

Ms. Kelly was arraigned today before District Judge Sue Haggerty, who set bail at $100,000. She faces a preliminary hearing Feb. 5.
