TETERBORO, N.J. -- A fugitive from San Francisco captured in Colorado after three years on the run was brought to New Jersey this week to face charges of flying in to Teterboro Airport three years ago with two large boxes of marijuana.
Bryan Calcott, 36, was being held on $250,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail on drug possession charges.
Calcott arrived at Teterboro on a chartered flight from Oakland with the marijuana in two large boxes on Dec. 12, 2012, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said.
After interviewing Calcott, authorities released him, obtained a search warrant and found the boxes containing 109 packages of pot, Molinelli said.
An arrest warrant was obtained, he said.
On Aug. 27, agents from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and Marshals Service arrested Calcott in Lakewood, Colo., the prosecutor said.
He then waived extradition.
The investigation was conducted by members of the prosecutor's Narcotic Task Force, the DEA's Newark Field Office and the Marshal’s Service Northern California Field Division.
