A Detroit man was arrested for dispensing marijuana from a vending machine bolted to the outside wall of his home.

Police say Marcellus Cornwell, 46, earned $2,000 a day dispensing weed out of his vending machine without a license.

The middle aged drug dealer retired from street sales about 4 years ago. He came up with a convenient way to still earn a living wage without leaving home.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the vending machine featured a navigation system with a touch screen, anime characters, and a voice command. It even accepted credit cards and Apple Pay.

Cornwall's enterprise was brought to the attention of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) by neighbors who were fed up with the constant foot traffic.

"If you do this stuff inside a neighborhood, people are going to take notice and they're going to get mad," said an ATF agent.

The feds raided Cornwell's residence and seized the vending machine, 18 firearms, ammunition and bags of marijuana.

According to court documents obtained by the Free Press, Cornwell "owned and operated the marijuana vending machine attached to the residence for four years, making approximately $2,000 per day."

Cornwall is currently out on bond.

Granison pleaded not guilty on Wednesday and was released without bail pending his next court hearing, the Dailymail.com reports.

Granison is no stranger to law enforcement. In 1997, when he was 17, he was arrested for his role in a jewelry store robbery. He was placed on probation for five years.

New York State Police Major Barry Chase said he hoped to interview the mayor as part of the investigation. However, the mayor's office is not responding to their calls.

The mayor insisted she and Granison have been separated "for many years," but they are roommates who still live in the home that was raided.

Ayvani Perez and Alberto Contreras-Rodriguez

When Ayvani Perez went missing on Tuesday, her Hispanic mother claimed 2 black men barged into her home, demanded cash and jewelry, before snatching the 14-year-old girl. Everyone knows that the easiest way to spark a stampede of media and police to your door is to blame a black man for kidnapping your child.

With 150 law enforcement's boots on the ground -- and the media breathlessly covering their every move -- Perez was found safe and sound in Conyers, a suburb southwest of Atlanta. 2 men are in custody, Wildrego Jackson, 29, and Alberto Contreras-Rodriguez, 40.
