(FORT WAYNE) - An Indianapolis man was indicted this week by a federal grand jury after more than a ton of marijuana was seized in Fort Wayne several weeks ago following a federal investigation which included the Steuben County Sheriffs Department. The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette reports 50-year-old Martin Gonzalez-Medina is charged with possessing with intent to distribute marijuana. Gonzalez-Medina is looking at a prison term of up to 40 years and a fine of up to $5 million.

The investigation was conducted by a D.E.A. Task Force made up of federal agents from the D.E.A. and I.R.S. as well as agents from the Steuben and Noble County Sheriff’s Departments and Fort Wayne Police.

According to court documents, the seizure was made in late April as the marijuana was delivered to a warehouse located near Industrial Road in Fort Wayne. Agents say the marijuana originated in Mexico and it was transported through Texas prior to arriving in Fort Wayne. The pot was compressed and hidden in twelve large deep freezers. Steuben County Sheriff Tim Troyer said at the time of the arrest that the seized marijuana had a street value of about $1.7 million. Troyer said the one ton pot bust was a significant strike against marijuana importation and distribution into Steuben County and communities throughout northeast Indiana.
