Ten people, including a Princeton man and several other Tri-State residents, have been arrested by federal authorities on charges of conspiring to import a ton of marijuana for distribution in southwest Indiana, western Kentucky and Georgia since 2009.
The Princeton Daily Clarion reports Aaron Hardiman, 30, was arrested Friday by U.S. Marshals in Princeton. He’s been indicted on conspiracy to distribute controlled substance, according to the case docket of the U.S. District Court in Evansville.
In late August, a grand jury returned sealed indictments against Haridman and several others from Evansville and other states. The marijuana, court documents say, was shipped by commercial tractor-trailers and other vehicles from the Gulf Cartel in Mexico.
