U.S. District Judge Henry E. Autrey on Tuesday sentenced a convicted felon who was caught with six kilograms (13.2 pounds) of marijuana and two guns to 10 years in prison.

On March 1, 2022, St. Louis County Police Department officers pulled over a 2008 Bentley that Jamie Jeffrey was driving. The officers saw a box in the backseat that contained bags of marijuana totaling about six kilograms. There were also two pistols in the car and $1,030 cash in Jeffrey’s pants pocket. 

Jeffrey later told police that the marijuana was what was left of 100 pounds that he obtained in trade in California for a 1969 Firebird in November of 2021.  He said he then traded some of that marijuana for the guns. Jeffrey is a convicted felon and is barred from possessing firearms.

Jeffrey, 47, of Eureka, California, pleaded guilty in July to being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The St. Louis County Police Department investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Chris Goeke prosecuted the case.
