BISMARCK, N.D. — A Los Angeles man has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for trafficking methamphetamine in North Dakota.
Forty-one-year-old Antonio Medrano was arrested in May 2015 after a traffic stop in Bismarck and a subsequent search of his hotel room. U.S. Attorney Chris Myers says authorities seized drugs, a gun and nearly $5,000 in cash.
A jury last July convicted Medrano of drug and weapon offenses. He was sentenced Tuesday. He’ll be on supervised release for 10 years following his prison term.
