LOCK HAVEN - A retired professor who taught nearly 40 years at Lock Haven University was arrested Friday after law enforcement officials searched his Mill Hall area home and seized over 130 marijuana plants and a significant amount of the cut and dried illegal drug.
Clinton County District Attorney Mike Salisbury announced today that Lawrence B. Lebin, 72, of 169 Gwynned Wynd Road, Mill Hall, now retired from instructing, was taken into custody Friday after a search warrant was executed at his residence.
Lebin was arrested after police acted on a tip and took a helicopter surveillance ride over the property, then spotted what appeared to be marijuana plants growing on the parcel.
He remains free on bail pending further legal action on the felony criminal counts of manufacture of a controlled substance and possession of controlled substance with intent to deliver.
