The San Diego man who ran a sophisticated meth ring from his popular water sports rental company was sentenced Wednesday to six years behind bars.
Mission Bay Sports Center owner Jason Boone received the sentence after pleading guilty to four felony counts including selling meth.
The business, known to many San Diegans as a place to rent water equipment or take lessons, was used a drop location for drug suppliers and buyers.
Investigators said drug couriers would drop in money or pick up methamphetamine from lockers on the premises.
About five pounds of methamphetamine along with heroin, marijuana and prescription pills were found at the sports center.
Officials also found $48,000 in cash a bullet proof vest and a loaded .22 handgun.
The District Attorney's office says Boone also had more than a pound of meth in his car and a loaded handgun in his North County home.
