Yesterday morning (Dec. 18), a man accepted a plea deal in a federal court here in Lubbock.

KAMC News reports, 45 year-old Zacarias Blanco-Olea admitted to possessing nearly 2,000 grams of meth. Blanco-Olea was stopped by a DPS trooper for a traffic violation in July where the trooper found the meth.

In March, federal investigators were investigating another man for leading a meth operation here in Lubbock.  Alejandro Garcia-Izazaga was helping Blanco-Olea traffic the meth from Dallas to Lubbock. A criminal case is still pending against Garcia-Izazaga.

If a judge approves the plea agreement, Blanco-Olea will be sentenced to no less than 10 years, or up to life in prison.
