Two men sentenced in marijuana cases.

Byline: The Register-Guard

Two men from Michoacan, Mexico, have been sentenced to prison at the U.S. Courthouse in Eugene in connection with separate marijuana grows discovered on Oregon public forest lands in 2007.

U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken sentenced 19-year-old Jose Fernandez-Alcazar to 87 months in prison after he pleaded guilty to cultivating more than 2,800 plants in a remote forested area near Alsea Falls. He was arrested after an investigation by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the Benton County Sheriff's Office and the Corvallis Police Department.

U.S. District Judge Michael Hogan sentenced Jose Rodriguez Santana, 24, to 64 months in prison after he pleaded guilty to cultivating more than 3,600 pot plants in a remote Coos County forest.

That grow was discovered as part of a marijuana eradication operation conducted by the Douglas County Interagency Narcotics Team, Oregon State Police and the South Coast Interagency Narcotics Team.

Both cases were prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Engdall.
