Today's THV, AR

Law enforcement agencies will split $80,000 in fines or assets forfeited after police broke up a family plot to grow marijuana.

Four family members were sentenced Monday after they entered guilty pleas in Miller County last month.

John Puzz, 57, was sentenced to 10 years in prison and ordered to forfeit assets worth$60,000. His wife Janet, age 52, was sentenced to five years' probation and must pay $5,000 in fines.

His son, 32-year-old Justin, was sentenced to 10 years' probation and fined $10,000 and daughter-in-law, 29-year-old Jenny, was sentenced to five years' probation and fined $5,000.

Miller County sheriff's deputies raided the parents' home in rural part of Texarkana on March 22, 2004. Officials say the family had an elaborate marijuana-growing scheme.
