LOS ANGELES (AP) — A former Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy who staged a $2 million robbery of a marijuana warehouse has been sentenced to seven years in federal prison.

Prosecutors say Marc Antrim of South El Monte was sentenced Monday for helping orchestrate a 2018 raid on a warehouse in downtown Los Angeles that yielded a half-ton of weed and some $645,000 in cash.

Authorities say Antrim used a fake search warrant to get past the guards, was accompanied by fake deputies and even managed to convince Los Angeles police that he was on a legitimate search. In fact, he was off-duty.
