Robert E. Robinson, 45, of Monroe, was sentenced Monday to 72 months in prison and five years of supervised release by U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty for possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and possessing firearms in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime. He previously pleaded guilty to the federal charges on February 20, 2019. 

Law enforcement agents with the Monroe Metro Narcotics Unit obtained a search warrant on October 4, 2017, for Robinson’s residence following two undercover buys of marijuana from him.  The search yielded more than 7 kilograms of marijuana as well as marijuana butter, marijuana cookies, digital scales and a marijuana grinder.  Officers also found three loaded firearms. More than 500 rounds of various caliber ammunition were recovered from the residence. 

The ATF and the Monroe Metro Narcotics Unit conducted the investigation.
