Five suspects plead guilty to being part of large pot-growing operation

by

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Five people have pled guilty in connection with a large-scale marijuana growing operation near Lakewood.

Authorities say they arrested 7 people after discovering over 8,400 marijuana plants in August, which would have a street value of millions of dollars.

All but one of the suspects were in the country illegally. They would serve their prison time before possible deportation proceedings would begin. 

According to online federal court records, the 5 who pleaded guilty will be sentenced to between 10 years and life in prison. Those hearings start in January. They are: Jose Alfredo Sierra-Aguilar, Pedro Infante-Ramirez, Guillermo Chavez-Carrion, Miguel Sanchez-Garcia and Maria Blanca Garcia. 

Trial for a sixth suspect, Juan Carlos Cervantes Contreras, is set for January 15.  A seventh subject, Jose Luis Sanchez, is listed as having a trial date Tuesday, but court officials say that will not happen. No other court dates for him are scheduled.
