OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLA. (KOKH) — An Oklahoma City man was sentenced to nine years in federal prison for marijuana charges.

Brandon Ye, 43, faced a four-count indictment for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

Ye’s arrest followed an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics (OBN), and Oklahoma City Police Department officers.

According to public records, in December 2022 investigators observed what appeared to be an ‘Amazon’ delivery van pull up to a suspected drug stash house and several individuals unloading trash bags.

After discovering the van was registered to a business address owned by Ye, authorities determined that the van was a fake Amazon vehicle, according to an affidavit in a previously filed criminal complaint.

Ye, along with several co-defenders, picked up trash bags of vacuum-sealed marijuana from licensed marijuana grows across Oklahoma, and delivered the bags to the stash house in Oklahoma City.

Between June 2022 and March 2023, it is estimated that Ye was involved in the shipment of approximately 28 tons of marijuana out of the state of Oklahoma.

Ye pleaded guilty to superseding information and admitted to knowingly possessing marijuana with the intent to distribute, and to possessing a firearm while distributing that marijuana illegally.
