The courts found that from January 2014 to June 2017, the group apparently conspired to sell 100kg of weed in Florida. Bines shipped the packages from California to Florida then sold the marijuana in Florida with the help of the others.

The money was then laundered through bank accounts and mailed to addresses in California. Over $3.5 million in cash was laundered over the course of three and a half years.

Bines was sentenced to four years and 11 months behind bars for his crime. It is not known where he will serve his time.

According to the DOJ:

This prosecution is part of an extensive investigation by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF).  OCDETF is a joint federal, state, and local cooperative approach to combat drug trafficking and is the nation’s primary tool for disrupting and dismantling major drug trafficking organizations, targeting national and regional level drug trafficking organizations and coordinating the necessary law enforcement entities and resources to disrupt or dismantle the targeted criminal organization and seize their assets.
