Pittsfield man gets 4 years for pot deliveries

Posted:

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A Pittsfield man has been sentenced to four years in prison for accepting deliveries of marijuana from FedEx.
    
Daniel Martin was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to charges including misdemeanor possession to distribute marijuana and possession of a firearm without a license.
    
The Berkshire Eagle reports that the 29-year-old Martin was arrested in March 2012 when a police officer disguised as a FedEx driver delivered marijuana to him.
    
Police were tipped off by FedEx after a driver detected the smell of marijuana from a package.
    
Police say Martin received nine packages of marijuana from Oregon in a month's time. A search of his home also turned up a sawed-off shotgun.
    
Martin's lawyer says his client had no criminal record and the secured shotgun belonged to a relative.
