Six arrested in massive trafficking operation that brought California marijuana to Minnesota, charges say


Six Twin Cities men have been charged in a sophisticated trafficking operation that federal authorities say may be responsible for importing thousands of pounds of marijuana products into Minnesota in recent years.

Criminal investigators for the IRS say the men shipped crates of marijuana by truck from northern California to a warehouse in St. Paul, where they packaged and prepared it for sale. Investigators tracked 61 shipments back and forth from California to Minnesota since 2016, according to an affidavit written by an IRS special agent.

The shipments "were usually about 300 to 500 pounds lighter" upon returning to California, the affidavit says, meaning the alleged conspiracy may have brought between 18,300 and 30,500 pounds of marijuana flower, edibles and other products into Minnesota.
