William Kenneth Pollock, 63, and Robin Lynn Pollock, 60, were arraigned on Tuesday, May 16 at Magisterial District Judge Timothy P. Schill’s office on the following charges:

  • Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver, Felony
  • Conspiracy – Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver
  • Intentional Possession Controlled Substance By Person Not Registered, Misdemeanor
  • Use/Possession Of Drug Parapharnalia, Misdemeanor

According to a criminal complaint filed on Wednesday, Clarion-based State Police Tpr. Huffman initiated a traffic stop along Interstate 80 eastbound on Tuesday around 11:05 a.m.

A Ford Expedition with Utah registration was stopped near mile marker 60 for a traffic violation.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as Robin Pollock. Police identified William Pollock as a passenger.

“I became suspicious of criminal activity, and I requested consent to search the vehicle which was denied,” said Tpr. Huffman in the criminal complaint.

The criminal complaint states that a Pennsylvania State Police drug detection dog was utilized to conduct an exterior search of the vehicle. The dog detected an odor indicating drugs were present, according to the criminal complaint.

A probable cause search of the vehicle uncovered four large black “hockey bags” that contained approximately 153 pounds of marijuana.

Robin Pollock and William Pollock were arraigned before Judge Schill at 4:00 p.m. and placed in the Clarion County Jail after failing to post $50,000.00 cash bail each.

They face preliminary hearings on May 23 at 3:00 p.m. with Judge Schill presiding.
