Grenades and Pipe Bombs Couldn't Save Orange County Meth, Pot Dealer From Federal Agents
A 47-year-old unemployed Orange County businessman--who ran a busy methamphetamine and marijuana operation from a Garden Grove house protected with grenades, pipe bombs, rifles, a shotgun and a massive cache of high-powered ammunition--learned his fate this month in federal court.
Micky Apostolovic, the onetime registered owner of Master Marble/Tile in Santa Ana, initially pleaded not guilty after his 2010 arrest, but later changed his mind to win a plea bargain that got 11 felony charges dropped in exchange for one conviction for meth sales.
In proceedings masked in tight secrecy at the Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse, U.S. District Court Judge James V. Selna sentenced Apostolovic to 68 months in prison.
