PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Maine’s U.S. Attorney says a Portland man has been sentenced to more than nine years in prison for large-scale sale of marijuana.

U.S. Attorney Thomas Delahanty says 30-year-old David Jones of Portland was sentenced by a federal judge Wednesday to 110 months in prison for distributing marijuana and money laundering.

Officials say that Jones obtained hundreds of pounds of marijuana out-of-state and distributed it in the state from August 2011 through October 2013 -

Federal agents armed with search warrants found nearly $300,000 in cash in a storage unit Jones rented, and nearly $100,000 in Jones’ residence and that of a drug associate.

Officials also learned Jones had laundered nearly $180,000 through a Saco lawyer-turned-business-partner who was sent to prison last year for laundering drug money.
