Truck Driver Sentenced For Drug Possession

A man who transported drugs across state lines will spend the next 10 years behind bars in federal prison.

The United States Attorney's Office says Clark Pauyo was found guilty of transporting 3,000 pounds of marijuana from California in September of 2008. Troopers say the drugs were headed to Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.

D.P.S. troopers say the drugs were found in the back of a tractor trailer that Pauyo was driving.

Pauyo will be deported after serving his full ten-year sentence.
