Juan Domingo Alonso, who was convicted by a military judge on charges including conspiracy to import and distribute marijuana, conspiracy to commit burglary and armed robbery and weapons charges, had himself quite the crime wave this past June, according to the story (it's striking how quickly the military disposes of a big case like this compared to the civilian justice system).
The 24-year-old from North Hollywood, Calif., was arrested June 10 by U.S. Customs officials at the San Ysidro port entry. They searched his rented car and found 153 pounds of marijuana, Navy documents show.
Alonso had gone to Tijuana, Mexico, that day even though he didn't have permission from his officer-in-charge to travel there, according to court documents.
Navy prosecutors also said Alonzo on June 5 broke into a home wielding a 12-gauge shotgun and a .38-caliber revolver and beat up a man before running off with two suitcases loaded with about 120 pounds of marijuana and money orders worth $12,000, Navy documents show.
Prosecutors also said he sold about 120 pounds of the pot in or around Memphis, Tenn., shortly before his arrest.
