Rocklin man jailed for transporting drugs

By Ed Fletcher

A 51-year-old Rocklin man arrested with four pounds of marijuana in his pickup truck last month was sentenced to six months in Placer County jail.

Brian Kirk will also receive three years of probation, according to a press release from the Placer County prosecutor's office.

Kirk entered a guilty plea to a felony charge of illegally transporting marijuana. He was initially stopped for a moving violation on the night of Nov. 7. At that time he was issued a citation for driving with a suspended license and instructed to leave the vehicle. Kirk left the truck, but returned a short time later where upon he was arrested for driving without a license.

A search of the vehicle yielded a suitcase with glass jars filled with marijuana, officials said.

During sentencing, Kirk was instructed by Superior Court Judge Colleen Nichols that he could continue to use marijuana for medial condition, but she instructed him to not drive while under the influence.
