Chief District Court Judge Wilma A. Lewis on Wednesday sentenced Luke Lubrin, 46, of St. Croix to four years of probation for manufacturing marijuana, U.S. Attorney Ronald W. Sharpe announced.
On June 26, 2014, 58 marijuana plants were found on Lubrin’s property by special agents with the United States Drug Enforcement Administration. In February, Lubrin pleaded guilty to one count of manufacture of marijuana.
As part of his plea, Lubrin admitted to growing marijuana on his property in Frederiksted.
As part of the term of probation, Lubrin was sentenced to serve six months of home confinement and pay a $1,000 fine.
The case was investigated by DEA and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Rami S. Badawy and Alphonso Andrews.
