An Acampo resident accused of possessing weapons, ammunition and growing more than 100 marijuana plants was indicted in federal court Thursday.
James Harlan Peters, 38, could face up to 40 years in prison and a $5 million fine if convicted, according to the Unite States Attorney’s Office.
The case was brought forth due to an investigation by the San Joaquin Sheriff’s Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration, the attorney’s office said.
Peters was arrested Sept. 6 and has previous felony convictions in 1999, 2000 and 2008, according to authorities.
