ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man called a “primary supplier” of marijuana in Rochester is pleading guilty.

Cody James Hunsley, 27 of Rochester, has entered guilty pleas to 2nd degree controlled substance crime and failure to use a tax stamp. Those are just two of the eight felony drug charges filed against him in January 2017 after the Rochester Police Street Crime Unit said it stopped Hunsley with just over three pounds of marijuana in his possession.

After his arrest, Rochester police went to an address where Hunsley had been seen and said they found 16 and ½ pounds of marijuana.
The criminal complaint against him described Hunsley as someone who sold 10 to 15 pounds of marijuana a week to mid- and low-level drug dealers in Rochester. His sentencing is now scheduled for January 14, 2019.

Three other people were arrested and charged with Hunsley.

Andrew Lorenzo Dee, 27 of Rush City, has pleaded guilty to 3rd degree drug possession and 3rd degree drug sales. His sentencing date is set for February 28, 2019.

All charges have been dismissed against Sauda Abubakar Maani, 23 of Rochester, and Daijoun Shakari Johnson, 24 of Irving, Texas.
