Man Pleads Guilty To Sending Pot From Oregon To Georgia

(Portland, OR) -- A man who was sending marijuana from Oregon to Georgia for distribution is pleading guilty in federal court. Federal prosecutors say 29-year-old Dante Baldocchi bought marijuana in Oregon and then shipped it via freight to Georgia where it was sold in the Atlanta area and in North Carolina. They shipped the money back to Oregon in vacuum-sealed bags, and sometimes it was hidden in buckets of drywall spackling compound. Federal agents found 330 pounds of marijuana at Baldocchi's house. He'll be sentenced in December and will face at least five years in prison and a five-and-a-half million dollar fine.
