While in a U.S. District court this month, a Milaca, Minnesota couple admitted to possessing for distribution a large amount of marijuana.
According to a press release sent out by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Montana, Steven Thomas Robinson, 59, and his wife Vicki Lynn Robinson, 59, both pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute marijuana. The penalty for this is a minimum of 5 years in prison and a maximum of 40 years. Along with that is a $5 million fine and four years supervised release. What a nice talking point during the holidays for the Robinson family.
The Montana Highway Patrol’s Eastern Montana Interdiction Task Force got a heads up from the Minnesota drug task force that a RV would be carrying a large amount of weed from California to Minnesota. The RV was spotted at a Walmart parking lot in Miles City, Montana. The RV’s next stop was the Gold Dust casino. After coming out of the casino, the couple was questioned by police. That led to the police asking for registration, which was in the RV. When the door to the RV was opened, a strong marijuana oder occurred. Steven Robinson then admitted to officers that they were transporting around 800 pounds of weed, it actually turned out to be 960 pounds.
My palms get sweaty when I’m driving down the road in the middle not doing anything wrong and a cop is behind me. I can’t fathom driving across the country in an RV with almost HALF A TON of an illegal drug.
