NEWS RELEASE FROM U.S. ATTORNEY STEPHEN MCALLISTER
A Kansas man was sentenced today to four years in federal prison for helping to move 168 pounds of marijuana from one house to another to keep police from finding it.
32-year-old Felipe Cano-Porras of Kansas City, KS, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute marijuana. Law enforcement had a house in the 900 block of Riverview in Kansas City, KS, under surveillance when Cano-Porras and another man come out. In the house, investigators found 186 pounds of marijuana in suitcases, 704 grams of methamphetamine, three firearms and more than $25,000 in cash. In his plea, Cano-Porras admitted he and another moved the marijuana, the methamphetamine, the guns and the cash into the house from another residence.
