A Bonduel man will serve 8 years in prison for running a marijuana operation in Shawano County. 54 year old Daniel Hofman pleaded no contest to charges of conspiracy to manufacture and deliver marijuana, and felony possession of pot. The criminal complaint says the operation included marijuana being brought into Minnesota from California by van. Hofman picked up a load of the drug in May 2016. Investigators followed him back to Shawano County, where they stopped his vehicle, and discovered more than 1000 grams of high grade marijuana. Eight others, including Hofman’s wife and son, were also charged in connection with the case.
