Image via WikipediaIt's being reported by KOAM News in Kansas that 8 people involved in a $20 million dollar marijuana ring have been convicted for trafficking marijuana. According to the report the ring had outposts in Phoenix, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Nashville, Patterson, N.J., Pittsburgh, Florida and Jamaica. The group acquired their marijuana from sources in Arizona and distributed it using parcel services.
Wait a minute...
Wasn't it just a couple days ago that we heard about an elderly couple receiving a five-pound brick of marijuana in the mail and didn't that couple live in Pittsburgh, and wasn't the return address on the package from Arizona?
I think I've cracked the case!
The article from KOAM doesn't mention a connection to the other story, but don't the pieces fit together a little too well to be coincidence?
Anyway, the ringleader of the trafficking organization was named in the report as 60-year-old Gladstone McDowell (Cool Name!), of Kansas City, MO.
The guilty verdict was handed down today after the trial began April 8. Sentencing is set for Sept. 12.
