A 33-year-old Lincoln man has been given 10 years in federal prison for his role in a pot-growing operation involving thousands of marijuana plants.

Aaron Polk was sentenced on Tuesday. He'd been convicted in September of conspiracy to manufacture 1,000 or more marijuana plants.

Polk was arrested in 2010. During his trial, witnesses testified he had growing operations in two homes he leased. Nearly 1,500 marijuana plants were seized from the two houses.

Prosecutors say Polk found the properties and set up the rentals, helping the conspirators avoid suspicion.
