MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 38-year-old man was sentenced Friday in Minneapolis Federal Court in connection with conspiring to distribute almost 1.48 kilograms of cocaine and about eight grams of marijuana.

Marlon Terrell Collins will serve 22 years in prison on one count of conspiracy to distribute cocaine and marijuana.

He was indicted on Dec. 7, 2010, and pleaded guilty on April 13, 2011. In the plea agreement, Collins admitted that from June 2010 to Sept. 3, 2010, he conspired with others to distribute 500 or more grams of cocaine and eight kilograms of marijuana.

Authorities learned last September that he was involved with sending drugs from Phoenix, Ariz., to Minnesota. By doing this, he violated conditions of a supervised release stemming from a 1998 conviction for aiding and abetting possession with intent to distribute in excess of 50 grams of cocaine.
