(FORT WAYNE) - In what is being called the most significant marijuana seizure in northeast Indiana in several years, an Indianapolis man is facing federal narcotic charges after more than 2,000 pounds of marijuana was seized in Fort Wayne. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency says 50-year-old Martin Gonzalez-Medina was charged in U.S. District Court with possession 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 on Monday 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 says the seized marijuana has a street value of about $1.7 million. Each bundle weighed between 10 and 50 pounds. Troyer says the one ton pot bust is a significant strike against marijuana importation and distribution into Steuben County and communities throughout northeast Indiana.
