Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) – A Rochester man who was accused of being involved in a local illegal drug operation has avoided a prison sentence.

38-year-old Sean Biren and another man were charged last year.

They were busted after police discovered a synthetic marijuana manufacturing operation in a rental storage unit while looking for a gun that had been used in an earlier shooting. The two men were accused of using the proceeds from the operation to purchase gold and silver coins, and other items.

Biren has been placed on probation for up to 10 years and ordered to perform 100 hours community work service. He pleaded guilty to a racketeering charge and as part of the plea agreement, eight other counts were dismissed. 

The AK-47 police were looking for had been used by the other man to shoot up a Rochester house.
