U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of Texas
HOUSTON – A 30-year-old Houston resident has been handed a significant sentence for his role in a meth distribution conspiracy, announced U.S. Attorney Alamdar S. Hamdani.
Aslay Jordan Salas pleaded guilty June 28, 2022.
U.S. District Judge Lee H. Rosenthal has now sentenced Salas to 293 months in federal prison to be immediately followed by five years of supervised release. In handing down the sentence, the court found Salas was a large-scale meth distribution supplier and was “pumping poison into the community for years.”
At the time of his plea, Salas admitted to supplying meth in a drug transaction that occurred Nov. 20, 2017, at a location on Little York Drive in Houston. He specifically transported the meth to the location and departed shortly after the deal took place.
Officers stopped Salas after the drug transaction and subsequently located a Beretta 9mm pistol in his vehicle.
Salas will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.
The FBI led the investigation in conjunction with the Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Department of Criminal Justice - Office of Inspector General, Harris County Sheriff’s Office and Houston Police Department.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Day is prosecuting the case.
