WACO (November 1, 2012)--Two Waco men were sentenced to federal prison Wednesday after they both earlier pleaded guilty to methamphetamine charges.
U.S. District Judge Walter S. Smith, Jr., sentenced Eric Guerrero to serve 168 months in prison, followed by three years supervised released, and ordered him to pay a $1,000 fine and $100 in a special assessment to the court.
Smith sentenced Augustine Ramirez to serve 120 months in prison followed by three years supervised release, ordered him to pay a $1,000 fine and $100 in a special assessment.
A court document presented at the plea hearings says that beginning in June 2011, Guerrero and Ramirez, along with at least two other men, were involved in a scheme to bring large amounts of methamphetamine from the Dallas area back to Waco for resale.
Waco police arrested a person after said he delivered approximately one ounce of methamphetamine and soon after the suspect began to cooperate as a confidential informant.
The informant identified the supplier of his methamphetamine as a person in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and he was assigned to bring the drugs to the Waco area and sell them.
The informant also told officers that Guerrero and Ramirez used the same supplier.
