Father and son receive two years in prison

Quinlan – A father and son from Quinlan have been sentenced to federal prison for transporting stolen property and wildlife trafficking.

James Dewayne Anderton and Jimmie Wallace Anderton pleaded guilty in August to charges of interstate transportation of stolen property (ITSP) and interstate trafficking of wildlife under the Lacey Act.

They both were sentenced to more than two years in federal prison.

Authorities in May 2006 executed search warrants at two ranches, one in Delta County and the other in Hunt County, owned by the Andertons.
