John R. Morales, a former McGruff the Crime Dog actor,  has been sentenced to 16 years in prison.

Morales was arrested in 2011 for speeding when Galveston police found diagrams of two indoor pot-growing operations and a load of pot seedlings stashed in the trunk.

After raiding his home, they seized 1,000 marijuana plants, 27 weapons – including a grenade launcher, and 9,000 rounds of ammunition.
