BRIDGETON, N.J. (AP) ― A New Jersey couple whose large marijuana stash was found by police who responded to an incident at their home are now both headed to state prison.

Thirty-five-year-old Jules Stubbs received a 10-year-sentence on Friday, while his 32-year-old wife, Angelique, got a seven-year term.

Cumberland County prosecutors say police went to the Millville couple’s home in January 2007 for a call that turned out to be a home invasion. As they worked to secure the residence, officers found nearly 6 pounds of marijuana and a large amount of cash.

The couple was convicted in July on drug possession and distribution charges.

Three men eventually pleaded guilty in the home invasion case and are now serving state prison terms.
