Williamson, N.Y. - A Webster man is facing charges after allegedly depositing marijuana in a bank night deposit bag.

This story comes to us from our news partners at The Times Of Wayne County. The Times reports State Police were called to the Lyons National Bank in Ontario after the bank found a bag of marijuana in the night deposit bag from a gas station in the Town of Ontario.

The night manager of the gas station, 27-year-old Timothy Ventura of Webster, allegedly said he went to his car to put the gas station's deposit in the bank bag, but accidentally picked up marijuana in his car seat as well. Once he closed and locked the bag, The Times reports Ventura realized what happened. He allegedly told State Police he had no choice but to make the deposit and wait. They say he later admitted the marijuana was his.

Mr. Ventura was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and is due back in Ontario Town Court next month.
