Two Houston-based drug traffickers have finally been sentenced to federal prison for their roles in a large Houston drug trafficking ring.
Between 2008 and 2010, the ring distributed large quantities of methamphetamine and cocaine to drug users in Houston, Beaumont and the surrounding area. Local police, Texas state officials and the Drug Enforcement Administration used wiretaps, undercover buys and other means to bring down 40 members of the ring. More than 50 kilograms of cocaine and 100 pounds of meth were seized as part of the operation.
All 40 members were subsequently convicted and are being sentenced. These two Houston-based traffickers received sentences totalling 199 months in federal prison.
