Car dealer sentenced in drug conspiracy


ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The 41-year-old owner of a car dealership in Cuba, Mo., will serve 60 months in prison for a marijuana conspiracy.

The U.S. Attorney's office announced Friday's sentence of Daniel Bryan Webster of Stanton. He pleaded guilty in July to various felonies, including conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than 100 kilograms of marijuana.

He also agreed to forfeit proceeds of his illegal activity including $235,320, a 2003 Dodge Viper, a 1956 Thunderbird, a 1988 Ferrari 328 GTS and a 2004 Gator X-Stream boat.

Webster admitted with his plea that between the fall of 2004 and August, 2008, he led a conspiracy to possess and distribute marijuana in Franklin County with others.

Webster owns Iron Gate Auto Sales in Cuba.
