Meth And Heroin Trafficker Sentenced To Prison
EUGENE, Ore. - Miguel Angel Reyna-Ramos, 38, was sentenced to serve 72 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to possession with intent to distribute 50 grams, or more, of a mixture and substance containing methamphetamine.
Reyna-Ramos was stopped by police in May 2015 while driving on Interstate 5 near Medford, Oregon. He did not have a driver’s license and also admitted the car he was driving was not registered to him. A narcotics detection dog was deployed after he refused consent to search the vehicle. The dog alerted to luggage compartment of the vehicle which contained two kilograms of heroin and eight kilograms of methamphetamine.
In handing down the sentence, U. S. District Judge Michael McShane considered the defendant’s background, including his lack of prior arrests, and the nature and circumstances of the crime, including the quantity of methamphetamine and heroin. Judge McShane noted that, as an illegal alien, the defendant would most likely be deported after serving his prison sentence.
This case was investigated by the Oregon State Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
