A Barren County felon and nine co-defendants have been sentenced for running a sophisticated indoor marijuana operation.
Considered the ring-leader of the operation, 70-year-old Dallas Norris of Glasgow, was sentenced this week to nearly 20 years in prison. He was charged with manufacturing and distributing the marijuana, money laundering, and possession of firearms by a convicted felon.
A tip led Kentucky State Police to Norris’ home in November 2011, where they discovered more than 1,200 marijuana plants. Police learned the indoor grow began in 2008 and had been producing seven to ten pounds of weed every two weeks. Norris was selling it for around $3,000 per pound.
