The Stoughton Police Department along with other state and local police agencies arrested a Brooklyn, New York man in Canton this past Friday for allegedly accepting a marijuana delivery valued at nearly $1 million, according to reports.
Thomas Jin Kim, 30, of Brooklyn, was taken into custody after taking possession of nearly 300 pounds of pot, according to MyFoxBoston.com, and was subsequently charged with trafficking in marijuana.
Canton police made the arrest shortly before 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 15, assisted by Detective Sergeant Robert Welch of the Stoughton Police, Massachusetts State Police assigned to the Norfolk County District Attorney's Office, and members of the Drug Enforcement Agency, according to the Boston Globe and MyFoxBoston.

Kim was arraigned Tuesday in Stoughton District Court, pleaded not guilty, and was held on $400,000 bail, according to the Globe.
