In El Paso yesterday, United States District Judge David C. Guaderrama sentenced 33–year-old Javier Chanet Navarro to ten years in federal prison on drug trafficking and firearms charges announced United States Attorney John F. Bash; FBI Special Agent in Charge Emmerson Buie, Jr., El Paso Division; and, Special Agent in Charge Kyle W. Williamson, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), El Paso Division.   
 
On March 6, 2018, Navarro pleaded guilty to a four-count Information charging him with two counts of conspiracy to distribute and controlled substance, one count of use of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime, and one count of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
 
According to court records, from June 2015 to September 2017, Navarro and others conspired to distribute more than 1,000 kilograms of marijuana.  They also conspired in September 2017 to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine.  Authorities arrested Navarro on September 22, 2017.  Subsequently, authorities discovered a .45 caliber pistol and 26 kilograms of cocaine on Navarro’s property.  Navarro’s criminal history includes a 2006 felony conviction in El Paso County for possession of marijuana.
 
“Crime doesn't stop at international borders, as such, the FBI works closely with our law enforcement partners to have a positive impact at our local level.  This sends a strong and unified message that drug trafficking, at all levels, will not be tolerated,” stated FBI El Paso Division Special Agent in Charge Buie.   
 
“The sentencing of Chanet Navarro exemplifies the commitment of law enforcement's battle against drug trafficking organizations throughout the world,” said DEA El Paso Division Special Agent in Charge Williamson.
 
This sentence resulted from an investigation by the FBI/DEA Strike Force.  The Strike Force is a multi-agency task force established to disrupt and dismantle major drug trafficking organizations.  Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), U.S. Border Patrol, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the El Paso Police Department assisted with this investigation.
