A California man admitted in court he hired a taxi driver to drive him and his concealed stash of more than 100 pounds of marijuana cross country. He was caught when a Pope County sheriff`s deputy pulled over the vehicle. Twenty nine year old Brandon Coy Hill of Compton, California, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Pope County Circuit Court to possessing a controlled substance with intent to deliver. He was sentenced to six years in prison. Under the plea agreement, charges were dropped against the taxi driver, who helped authorities find Hill after Hill fled when the taxi was stopped. Police say Hill hired the cab driver for more than two thousand dollars to take him from California to Jackson, Tennessee. Twenty hours into voyage, the vehicle was pulled over. The driver gave consent to search, though Hill was nervous and fled on foot. Hill was captured months later after police tracked him down through addresses supplied by the driver.
