Dylan Hudson, 26, of Placerville pleaded guilty last week to drug charges that could put him behind bars for five to 40 years. According to court documents, Hudson was the lead man in a three-state marijuana trafficking case that Department of Justice (DOJ) special agents, along with local and federal investigators, followed from California to Illinois and Wisconsin.
The case started last March with a tip that led authorities to a private shipping company in West Sacramento. Special agents with the Mountain And Valley Marijuana Investigation Team (MAVMIT) went to work and seized more than 1,100 pounds of processed marijuana, more than $329,000 in cash and eight firearms.
"Hudson was one of about a dozen people arrested in connection with this case," said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. "Our special agents have demonstrated their commitment to working with other agencies to put a stop to drug trafficking. Hudson pleaded guilty which means they did their job and they did it thoroughly. Californians should be proud of what DOJ special agents do, day in and day out to rid California of drugs, violence and other crime."
Hudson is scheduled to be sentenced May 3, 2013.
