YORK- A California man has been sentenced to a term of 18 months to 36 months in prison for transporting 220 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $600,000. The case in which George Lewis, 67, of Clearlake, California has been convicted, began last January when the York County Sheriff’s department made a routine stop on Interstate 80 on a white Chevy Suburban for a traffic violation. Suspicious activity led to a canine unit being deployed and the dog alerted the presence of narcotics. His prison time will begin immediately.
