Kansas City, Kan., Man Sold Six to Ten Kilos of Meth a Week
KANSAS CITY, KAN. – A Kansas City, Kan., man was sentenced Wednesday to 15 years in federal prison after admitting he distributed six to 10 kilos of methamphetamine a week, U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said.
Luis Enrique Martinez-Rosales, 25, Kansas City, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and one count possession with intent to distribute. In his plea, he admitted the Kansas Highway Patrol found two kilograms of methamphetamine and almost $50,000 in cash when they stopped his car on I-70 in Wyandotte County, Kan. He received methamphetamine in loads smuggled into the United States in tractor-trailers and wired payment to Mexico.
Beall commended the Kansas Highway Patrol, the Drug Enforcement Administration and Assistant U.S. Attorney Tris Hunt for their work on the case.
