TYLER, Texas (AP) - An East Texas man has been sentenced to nearly five years in federal prison for plotting to sell marijuana stolen from a law enforcement evidence room.

Roderrete Dewrayne McClure of Carthage was sentenced Monday in Tyler. The 43-year-old McClure in March pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute marijuana.

Investigators say McClure conspired to distribute more than 100 pounds of marijuana stolen in 2010 from the Tenaha (TEN-uh-hah) City Marshal’s office.

Prosecutors say fire starter logs were substituted to cover the theft of the marijuana, intended to be sold in the Shreveport, Louisiana, area.
