A man was sentenced Thursday for his role in the mailing of four pounds of crystal methamphetamine to Hawaii that was stuffed in two mannequin heads.
It was the second case involving mannequin heads used to conceal meth shipment to Hawaii.
"We were never able to directly link them," Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Inciong said after Bates was sentenced. "I would find it extremely unlikely they were not connected in some way."
His public defender, Alexander Silvert, said outside of court his client doesn't know why mannequin heads were used. "He had nothing to do with the shipping," Silvert said.
