LAREDO, Texas - A 28-year-old resident of San Antonio has been ordered to federal prison following her conviction of conspiracy to import methamphetamine, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.

 

Ana Victoria Portillo pleaded guilty March 4, 2019.

 

Today, U.S. District Judge Diana Saldana imposed a 46-month sentence to be immediately followed by five years of supervised release.

 

On Nov. 20, 2018, Portillo entered the country from Mexico through the Lincoln-Juarez Bridge Port of Entry driving a Mitsubishi passenger car. Her two minor children were also present with her in the vehicle.

 

At the time he entered the inspection point, she presented her American passport. Law enforcement searched the inside of her trunk and saw a speaker box with signs of physical tampering. She was then referred to secondary inspection.

 

There, authorities again noticed suspicious tool markings indicative of tampering on a portable speaker box located inside the trunk of her car. Portillo claimed ownership of the box and brought it to the x-ray scanner to be examined.

 

After that examination, it tested positive for methamphetamine. Inside the speaker, authorities found approximately 8.825 kilograms of methamphetamine with an estimated 97% purity known as ice.

 

She was permitted to remain on bond and voluntarily surrender to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.

 

U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Francisco J. Rodriguez is prosecuting the case.
