“Thanks for coming,” the security chief calls out to department attendees. “Drive safely.”

MOUNT VISION – State police arrived at the 23rd annual NY Harvest Fest & Freedom Fair/Political Rally at 2 p.m. today looking to “serve an arrest warrant,” according to a security officer who identified himself as proprietor of N.E.S. Solutions, Providence, R.I.

He said N.E.S. has provided security at the event for the past nine years.

“It’s always been a freedom rally,” said the security chief, “rallying for legalization of marijuana.”

The troopers remained until 4:30, but when they found the individual they were seeking, he was no longer the “land leasee.”
