Californian gets 10 Years for Iowa Pot Sales
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a 68-year-old California man has been sentenced to prison for his role in an Iowa pot operation.
Federal prosecutors say Gerhard Hanneman, of Fort Bragg, Calif., last week was given 10 years in prison. Hanneman had pleaded guilty to conspiring to manufacture and distribute marijuana. He must serve four years of supervised release when he leaves prison.
Co-defendant Joseph Haynes has been given 78 months in prison, and co-defendant Andrew Gallagher is awaiting sentencing.
Prosecutors say that from February 2011 to December 2011, Hanneman grew the pot in California, then processed it and drove it to Iowa for distribution by Gallagher and Haynes.
Iowa police departments in Coralville, Fairfield, Iowa City and Ottumwa and several Iowa sheriff's departments participated in the investigation.
