San Diego man sentenced to 20 years in prison for trafficking methamphetamine

(BOISE, Idaho) – Jose A. Mouw, 45, of San Diego, California, was sentenced on November 13, 2017, in United States District Court to 240 months in prison for possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine. Senior U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge also ordered that Mouw serve 10 years of supervised release and forfeit $4,000 in drug proceeds.

According to court records, on two occasions, Mouw transported methamphetamine from southern California to Idaho for distribution. On September 26, 2016, Mouw traveled from California and distributed two ounces of methamphetamine to an undercover officer in Boise. On October 7, 2016, Mouw was returning to Idaho from California with more methamphetamine when officers in Twin Falls pulled him over and discovered 670 grams of pure methamphetamine in the trunk of his car.

The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Ada County Sheriff’s Office, and the Twin Falls Police Department.

This case was prosecuted by the Special Assistant U.S. Attorney hired by the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and the Idaho High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Board. The Idaho High Intensity Drug Trafficking Board is a collaboration of local law enforcement drug task forces and prosecuting agencies dedicated to addressing regional drug trafficking organizations that operate in Ada, Canyon, and Malheur County.
