Man pleads guilty to having ton of pot
A Florida man pleaded guilty Monday to a drug felony charge, after officials said they found a ton of marijuana when they searched his tractor-trailer truck.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Larry H. Ferrell said the drugs were found May 17 when officers at a truck scale in Pemiscot County noticed discrepancies in the paperwork the driver provided to them.
Angel Hechavarria, 43, of Hialeah, Fla., pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute 100 kilograms or more of marijuana. Sentencing will be Jan. 7. He faces a maximum of 40 years in jail and a $2 million fine.
