A Detroit man pleaded guilty to a firearms charge after a weed vending machine at his home led to a search. Marcellus Cornwell, 44, pleaded guilty this week to a charge of felon in possession of a firearm.
Last year, authorities received an anonymous tip about a marijuana vending machine attached to his home in the area of Mettetal near Fenkell.
Agents surveilled Cornwell’s home and purchased weed twice from the vending machine before searching the home and interviewing Cornwell. According to feds, Cornwell told the agents that he has operated the vending machine for four years, and he makes about $2,000 a day from it.
