Hawaii-Bound Meth Trafficker Sentenced

SEP 29 (FRESNO, Calif.) – Oscar Rodriguez, 31, of Sanger, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Lawrence J. O'Neill to four years and one month in prison.
 
According to court documents, on January 31, 2013, Transportation Security Agency officers stopped Rodriguez at the Modesto Airport after his baggage tested positive for the presence of a prohibited substance. As the result of a pat-down search, officers discovered two zip-lock baggies containing methamphetamine. The combined weight of the packaging materials and methamphetamine was 2.68 pounds. Rodriguez was carrying boarding passes for flights from Modesto to San Francisco and from San Francisco to Maui, Hawaii.

This case was the product of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Transportation Security Administration, and the Modesto Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Michael Frye prosecuted the case.
