McALLEN, Texas (AP) — A South Texas man who owned a tractor-trailer rig found in New York City with nearly 750 pounds of cocaine on board has been sentenced to 27 years in prison.
Prosecutors say 52-year-old Alonzo Avila of Mission was sentenced Monday by a federal judge in McAllen. Avila earlier pleaded guilty to drug trafficking and money laundering charges.
Agents in New York City seized the cocaine in 2006 in an investigation that led to the discovery of trucks hauling drugs from Texas to New York, Atlanta and Columbus, Ohio.
