Followup: Driver Pleads Guilty to Hauling 13 tons of Marijuana

riversidebustIn August, Spark Report featured a story about Riverside, California police making a huge bust which netted over 25,000 pounds of marijuana. It all went down after a deputy pulled over a 18-wheel truck near Temecula, California for an illegal lane change. Deputies opened the trailer and found pallets of marijuana stacked to the ceiling.

The driver of that truck, 51-year-old Angel Guillen Raya of Ontario, California, pleaded guilty this week to transporting the marijuana with the intent to distribute it. A U.S. attorney’s office spokesman says no one else has been charged in the case, but an investigation into the source of the marijuana is ongoing. Good luck with that. Seeing as Raya pleaded guilty to such a significant charge, chances are he didn’t give up any names.

Sentencing is scheduled for April 12th.
