Recently, a restaurant owner in Thornton was accused of laundering profits from a massive marijuana cultivation ring.

Dan Tang pleaded not guilty to money laundering when he appeared in the District Court.

If Tang is found guilty he can face up to 20 years in prison and will have to forfeit all of his property, including $1.8 million from bank accounts.
