10 years in prison for Massachusetts man

Posted by wlpo on June 12, 2010

A Massachusetts man is headed to prison for hauling over 100 pounds of pot through the Illinois Valley.

Through an interpreter, 40 year old Hung The Truong agreed to a 10-year prison sentence.  He was pulled over on Route 251 in Peru back in February for allegedly failing to signal.  After smelling what was supposedly cannabis, police searched Truong’s U-Haul and found over 90 packages of marijuana weighing 102 pounds.

The marijuana was reportedly found in a hide-a-bed couch and box spring mattress.  It has an estimated street value of over $513,000.
