SAN JOSE, Calif. (BCN) — A San Jose man pleaded guilty last week to federal marijuana distribution charges, according to the Department of Justice. Tan Minh Vo, 50, admitted to the scheme to ship nearly 500 pounds of marijuana from Fresno to Kansas City, Missouri, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

The first shipment was discovered by police after a traffic stop in Kansas City in November, 2018. Another shipment was detected traveling through Arizona after the driver was pulled over for a malfunctioning tail light.
