Woodbridge Woman Sentenced to Five Years in Prison for Drug Crimes

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Amanda Rubio Alfaro, 42, of Woodbridge, was sentenced today to 60 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine.

According to the statement of facts filed with the plea agreement, Alfaro’s boyfriend, Oscar Hernandez Deleon, was the leader of a crew that was importing cocaine from Puerto Rico for redistribution in Woodbridge.  Alfaro admitted she was fully aware of the scope of her boyfriend’s drug trafficking activities, such as the fact that Deleon was receiving cocaine shipments from Puerto Rico; that he was storing cocaine and firearms inside their residence; and that he was selling cocaine to customers at various locations in Woodbridge.  Alfaro assisted Deleon’s drug trafficking activities by serving as a translator when Deleon negotiated cocaine deals with English speaking customers, and helped Deleon wire drug payments to his source of supply in Puerto Rico. 

Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; Paul M. Abbate, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office; and Maria L. Kelokates, Inspector in Charge of the Washington Division of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge Liam O'Grady.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Kimberly R. Pedersen and J. Tyler McGaughey prosecuted the case.

This case was initiated by the Prince William Police Department, and they worked jointly with the FBI’s Washington Field Office to investigate the case.
