Plea Deals Made In California-To-Ohio Pot Case

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The case of several California residents charged with delivering thousands of pounds of marijuana to Ohio in suitcases is wrapping up with a final guilty plea and a ringleader’s sentencing.

Authorities say the scheme involved 14 flights from Los Angeles to Ohio and elsewhere, distributed about 7,000 pounds of the drug and earned more than $3 million.

Sentencing was scheduled Friday in federal court in Columbus for 28-year-old David Garrett of Culver City, Calif., an alleged leader of the scheme. He pleaded guilty last year to distributing more than 2,000 pounds of the drug.

Also Friday, 25-year-old Meili Cady of Los Angeles was expected to plead guilty for her role.

A sixth and final defendant, Henry Hernandez of Los Angeles, indicated Friday that he, too, will plead guilty.
