Puyallup man pleads guilty in pot grow shooting
Pierce County man who killed 2 while protecting his grow operation pleads guilty
SEATTLE (AP) _ A Pierce County man has pleaded guilty to drug and gun crimes in connection to an April 2013 shooting at his marijuana grow operation.
U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan says 36-year-old Jeremy Peter Capodanno faces at least five years in prison, the mandatory minimum penalty for possession of a firearm in relation to a drug trafficking crime. Capodanno is to be sentenced Jan. 17.
In December 2012 he shot and killed two people who broke into the garage of his Puyallup home.
Under the terms of the plea agreement, Capodanno also is forfeiting the nearly $670,000 in proceeds from selling his homes in Puyallup and Kent. In the garage was a marijuana grow operation with nearly 200 plants. Police officers found a number of guns in the garage and Capodanno's truck.
