LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A man who Lincoln authorities say had more than 20 pounds of marijuana in his possession has been sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison.

The Lincoln Journal Star (http://bit.ly/1KQAfZX ) reports 59-year-old Gary Tarrence was sentenced Thursday. Tarrence also received two years of supervised released and was ordered to forfeit almost $6,000.

He had pleaded guilty to possession with the intent to distribute.

Prosecutors say the marijuana was found in his Lincoln apartment April 15, 2014, during a drug raid. Tarrence’s brother, David Tarrence, has filed a claim against the city of Lincoln and Lancaster County, saying law enforcement wrongly seized cash and property from his home after his brother was arrested in 2014.
