Phoenix man sentenced in marijuana growing case

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix man has been sentenced to 6 ½ years in federal prison for growing and distributing marijuana.

Federal prosecutors say 28-year-old John Cary Dean was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in Phoenix.

He pleaded guilty in January to two counts of possession with intent to distribute less than 50 kilograms of marijuana, one count of manufacturing marijuana, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking offenses.

Dean was arrested in May 2013 after authorities searched his residence.

They reported finding a marijuana grow operation, 32 pounds of marijuana packaged for sale, hydroponic growing supplies, nearly $80,000 in cash and 11 firearms.

In February 2013, Arizona authorities say Dean was stopped in Flagstaff with 25 pounds of high-grade marijuana and a loaded handgun en route to Alabama.
