A drug dealer who imported marijuana from California to New Jersey was sentenced Monday to two years in prison for bribing postal service mail carriers to deliver him the contraband.
Glenn Blackstone bought the marijuana from a conspirator, who produced the pot in California and shipped it to New Jersey, according to federal authorities. The parcels had fake names and were not addressed to Blackstone. He paid two postal workers to divert those shipments from the normal delivery process and bring the drugs to him instead.
After receiving the drug shipments from the mail carriers, Blackstone sold the marijuana in Newark, according to court documents. Authorities previously said Blackstone paid at least $12,400 to the postal workers.
