Norway’s Crime Czar Busted for Hashish Smuggling
On Monday, a district court in Oslo sentenced Norway’s former top police official for organized crime to 21 years in prison for conspiracy to smuggle hashish. Eirik Jensen was arrested in 2014, after being secretly filmed in a meeting with Gjermund Cappelen, said to be Norway’s biggest hashish importer.
The two men were tried together.
The court found that Jensen had received 667,800 kroner (about $85,000) in bribes to protect Cappelen’s operations. Prosecutors said the total figure may have been 2.44 million kroner ($314 million), in exchange for allowing some 14 metric tons of hash to enter the country.
Cappelen got a reduced sentence of 15 years for testifying against his ex-protector. Jensen got the maximum sentence allowed by Norwegian law, according to Oslo’s the Local.

Microchips Used to Track Marijuana Found at Ex-Sheriff’s Farm
A former Kentucky county sheriff who allegedly provided cannabis plants to local black market cultivators to grow on his property was caught with the help of microchips and piloted video cameras.
Peyman, who once worked as a sheriff in Jackson County, purportedly grew the plants on his farm under the guise of the state’s newly-implemented industrialized hemp program, which was put in place after a decline in tobacco production, one of Kentucky’s biggest sources of revenue.
As per the Lexington Herald Leader, police obtained aerial footage taken 350 yards away from the Peyman farm discovered marijuana plants kept in a tree line enshrouded by weeds. After these initial findings, authorities then implanted microchips into six out of the 61 plants for tracking purposes.
