BANGOR — A man has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison after pleading guilty in Maine to operating a marijuana growing operation out of his parents’ home.

Court records say 33-year-old Paul Ford of Monroe and three other family members were involved in the marijuana growing from about 2006 to 2011. Records said Ford also operated a separate marijuana growing operation at his home in Swanville.

Police say they seized 300 marijuana plants and 10 pounds of processed pot, together worth about $800,000, on Nov. 16, 2011, from Ford’s parents’ home in Monroe.

At the time, a Maine Drug Enforcement Agency said agents found the plants in the garage with an estimated $80,000 worth of growing equipment.

Ford, who was sentenced Monday, will be on supervised release for five years after prison.
