There was a no contest plea on Thursday in one of the Tallahassee Police Department's largest ever marijuana busts.

TPD'S Vice Unit made the bust back in January of 2005 after a tip led them to a Tallahassee apartment where several packages of marijuana were found, sent via UPS from California to Florida.

Robin Lotane, Assistant State Attorney, said, "It was a little over 113 pounds and it's one of the biggest ones we've seen that I can remember."

Prosecutors say Shanrika Oliver pleaded no contest to trafficking, possession, and drug house charges.

Zavaris Jackson is already serving a three year prison sentence for his involvement. Oliver's sentencing is set for December. The charges could carry as many as 30 years in prison.
