Man charged after search uncovers 77 pounds of marijuana


A Lancaster man was arrested after police searched a storage unit and found nearly 80 pounds of marijuana.

Paul Dicicco, 34, is charged with several felony counts of drug-dealing and related offenses. He is in Lancaster County Prison, with bail set at $1 million.

The district attorney’s office said Lancaster County Drug Task Force was investigating Dicicco before searching the West Donegal storage locker on Friday. The task force found 77 pounds of marijuana, two pounds of THC wax, and 250 vials of THC oil.

THC, the compound that gives pot its high, is more concentrated in oil and wax forms.

Detectives also found about $60,000 in cash and packaging paraphernalia.

The district attorney’s office said the value of the seized marijuana is estimated between $200,000 and $400,000, depending on how it was to be sold.
