A Connecticut man was charged with selling brightly wrapped candy treats containing a marijuana derivative Thursday prior to the Patriots game at Gillette Stadium.

Foxboro police arrested Jason Lee Glaude, 43, of Danielson and Plainfield Conn. about 2:30 p.m. Thursday across the street from Bass Pro Drive on Route 1 as a result of an investigation by plainclothes Patrolman Stephen McGrath.

Police said Glaude had a vehicle parked nearby and alleged that he was selling packages of candy marked “60 milligrams THC” the active ingredient in marijuana.

According to a report, police seized a quantity of candy from a backpack and Glaude’s vehicle along with $1,949 in cash. Bags containing a substance that appeared to be marijuana were also taken.

Glaude was charged with possession of a class D substance with intent to distribute and was arraigned Friday in Wrentham District Court.

A total of four criminal arrests and eight protective custodies were recorded prior to and during Thursday’s game.
