15 Years for Drug Trafficker

June 22nd 2012   ·   7 Comments

MCALLEN – A convicted drug trafficker was sentenced to more than 15 years in prison for transporting marijuana. Eusebio Mendoza caught Border Patrol’s attention after nearly colliding head on with an agent on routine patrol.

The 28-year-old admitted he was hired on April 23, 2011, to drive a truck loaded with marijuana from Weslaco to a different area.

The Brownsville resident pleaded guilty last year to possessing and intending to distribute more than 220 pounds of marijuana.

After completing his prison sentence, Mendoza must serve five years supervised release.
