Not so clearly a kidnapping

The Dryden resident accused of kidnapping a Ithaca man was released:

Judge Christopher Clauson released Jason H. Smith, 25, after his preliminary felony hearing in Dryden Town Court Thursday, said Smith's attorney William P. Sellers IV. Clauson found that Assistant District Attorney Linda Gafford didn't present sufficient evidence to hold him pending grand jury action, Sellers explained.

It seems to be a marijuana deal gone very strangely wrong.
