A 43-year-old Baltimore man pleaded guilty in federal court yesterday to possessing about $400,000 worth of marijuana.
According to the plea agreement, a law enforcement officer saw Chester Griffiths' vehicle at a truck stop in Howard County on June 15.
After discovering that the vehicle's registration had been suspended, the officer found more than 350 pounds of marijuana inside.
Griffiths could receive a maximum of life in prison with a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years. U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz scheduled sentencing for April 17.
