Arizona Man Sentenced For Drug Trafficking

United States Attorney Trent Shores announced today that Chief United States District Judge Gregory Frizzell sentenced Francisco de Jesus Bojorquez Para, 33, of Phoenix, Arizona, to serve 170 months in federal prison for Distribution of Methamphetamine and Possession With Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine.

Bojorquez Para was a multiple-pound distributor of methamphetamine in the Tulsa area.  On April 3, 2017, federal agents arrested Bojorquez Para with several pounds of pure methamphetamine, commonly known as “Ice”, over $10,000.00 in cash, digital scales and several cell phones.  When agents arrested Bojorquez Para, he also had a distribution amount of heroin in his possession.

“This prosecution was the result of a concerted and relentless campaign to target sources of supply responsible for bringing methamphetamine, heroin and other controlled substances into the Northern District of Oklahoma,” said United States Attorney Shores.

This prosecution was part of Operation “Pine Tar Posse”, an Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) investigation.  The prosecution resulted from a joint investigation conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Broken Arrow Police Department, Tulsa Police Department and Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics.  Assistant United States Attorney Joel-lyn A. McCormick handled the prosecution of this case.
