A department spokeswoman Thursday said police did not provide a reason that Webley was a target of the sting by detectives from the Critical Incident Rapid Response Team task force.

The spokeswoman also did not know the street value of the marijuana.

Webley is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead.
