YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – A York County man who sold cocaine and marijuana plants to undercover officers told investigators he’s been growing marijuana in southern York County for more than 20 years, authorities said.

Hugh A. Lloyd II, 48, of Brogue, is accused of selling to undercover officers at various places throughout the county, including a commercial property in York Township and the Baublitz Airfield in Lower Chanceford Township.

Lloyd lived in an airplane hanger at the airport and used it for his base of operations, according to York County District Attorney Tom Kearney’s office.

The York County Drug Task Force and state police also seized marijuana plants planted by Lloyd in fields surrounding or close to his home, Kearney’s office said in a news release.

Authorities said Lloyd admitted he planned to harvest and sell the marijuana to partially fund a used car business at the York Township property.

He’s charged with three counts of delivery of a controlled substance, manufacture of a controlled substance, and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.
