Two Men Sentenced to Over 10 Years in Prison for Meth Operation
Two men have been sentenced to over 10 years in prison for their roles in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy.
25 year-old Hector Terrazas, of Amarillo, and 41 year-old Miguel Bravo-Farias, an illegal immigrant, pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine. Terrazas was sentenced to 13 years in prison, while Bravo-Farias was sentenced to 15.
According to the plea agreement, police scheduled an operation to purchase 20 pounds of methamphetamine from Terrazas and Bravo-Farias. Then when officers meet them, they were both arrested when they found the box containing a large amount of meth.
Law enforcement issued a search warrant on Terrazas' residence. During the search, police found 2 containers with crystal like residue and 34 empty glass bottles with the crystal like substance. In the refrigerator, police found nearly 5,500 grams of liquid methamphetamine. Throughout the house, equipment used for manufacturing meth was found.
Terrazas and Bravo-Farias have been in custody since their arrest in June 2017.
