DeWitt police seize pounds of marijuana, prescription pills during drug bust


DEWITT, N.Y. — Pounds of marijuana, prescription pills and other drugs were seized by police during a two-month investigation in DeWitt.

Michael A. Boldt, 23, of North Syracuse, was arrested Wednesday by the DeWitt Police Department and charged with 15 felonies. The most serious charge he’s facing is first-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance — a crime punishable by up to 25 years to life in prison.

The investigation that led to Boldt’s arrest started with a complaint, police said.

Officers responded to 1025 Kinne St. in DeWitt on March 10 to check out a drug complaint, police said. After finding over 3 pounds of marijuana and 5 ounces of prescription drugs, police arrested two East Syracuse men: Daniel Georgevich, 34, and Eugene Georgevich, 61.

A search of the Kinne Street home led officers to a large safe filled with drugs, police said. Here’s what police said was seized from the safe:

  • Over half a pound of cocaine
  • 4.7 ounces of crack cocaine
  • 2 pounds of marijuana
  • 13.5 ounces of prescription pills
  • Over 90 Suboxone strips
