SYCAMORE – When DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at his home to ask about marijuana, a Waterman man said they may as well arrest him, police said.

They did – but months later.

Brandon J. Seaney, 20, of the
300 block of Cedar Street, was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and unlawful possession of marijuana after police acting on a tip searched his home about 3:49 p.m. Jan. 17.

According to court documents, a DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputy visited Seaney’s home and told him he was checking on a tip.

The deputy asked if Seaney had any marijuana in the house, and when Seaney said he did, the officer asked Seaney to go get it, according to court records. Seaney brought back a small bag of pot.

The deputy said he would like to come in and search the house, according to court records, at which point Seaney let the deputies in.

As officers began heading upstairs, Seaney told the deputies “You might as well take me to jail,” according to court records.

Seaney told police he probably had “at least a couple pounds” of marijuana in the house and that he sold between $7,000 and $8,000 a month in marijuana from his home, according to court records.

Deputies found two freezer bags of pot that weighed 2 pounds in all, multiple packages of marijuana vapor cartridges and about 11 ounces of
marijuana, a digital scale and other paraphernalia, according to court records.

A warrant with a $5,000 bond was issued for Seaney on Nov. 1, and police arrested him Thursday. He posted $500 bail and was released from jail the same day.

Seaney is next due in court at 9 a.m. Nov. 27.
