The last of a number of Mexican citizens connected with several drug deals in Wichita was sentenced to federal prison.
It began in late 2009, when the Wichita Police Department began conducting an investigation into suspected drug trafficking involving a number of people, some of who had ties to Mexico.
During the investigation, Oklahoma City Police stopped a van in Norman, Okla. and seized 137 pounds of marijuana bound for Wichita.
A news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office said investigators also obtained wiretaps to monitor traffickers’ phones, monitored global positioning devices on specified cell phones and arranged to buy drugs from the men.
