WORTHINGTON - A California man was sentenced to 90 days imprisonment after more than 30 pounds of marijuana and methamphetamine were discovered in his vehicle.

Anthony Ginn, 28, of Pittsburg, Calif., received a stay of imposition after pleading guilty to third degree possession of 10 kilos or more of a marijuana mixture. The felony-level offense could be considered a misdemeanor conviction should Ginn successfully complete the terms of five-year supervised probation.

Ginn was also ordered to complete a chemical dependency test and pay a $1,000 fine. Two other felony-level charges were dismissed as part of the plea agreement.

Ginn has served time in the Nobles County Jail since being arrested Dec. 10 after a Nobles County Sheriff’s deputy discovered 33 pounds of marijuana and two baggies with approximately 2.5 grams of methamphetamine in his vehicle.

Ginn’s passenger, Michael Franks, 46, of Bay Point, Calif., also remains in custody in the Nobles County Jail.

Franks entered a guilty plea Jan. 17 for the same felony third-degree drug possession charge. His sentencing date has yet to be determined.
