LAREDO, Texas – A 32-year-old Mexican national has admitted he conspired to import over 50 kilograms of meth into the United States, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.

 

Jose Ramos-Delgadillo pleaded guilty in federal court today to two counts – conspiracy to import and importation of meth.

 

On Aug. 4, 2019, he arrived in Laredo at the Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge driving a Ford Escape. An initial search yielded 24 bundles of meth concealed within the tires. However, authorities also discovered an additional 19 bundles in the vehicle’s firewall.

 

Upon questioning, Ramos-Delgadillo claimed he was a wrestler from Guadalajara, Mexico, who was traveling to Dallas to visit a friend.

 

He soon admitted he knew there were narcotics in the vehicle. He expected to be paid $5,000 for transporting the drugs.

 

The drugs weighed a total of 53.56 kilograms with an approximate value of more than $300,000.

 

He has been and will remain in custody pending his sentencing, which will be set at a later date before U.S. District Judge Diana Saldana. At that time, Ramos-Delgadillo faces a minimum of 10 years and up to life in prison as well as a possible $10 million fine.  

 

He has been and will remain in custody pending that hearing.

 

Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations conducted the investigation with assistance from Customs and Border Protection. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Day is prosecuting the case
