LAREDO, Texas – A 49-year-old woman has been ordered to federal prison following her conviction for conspiring to import cocaine, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.

Ramona Elizabeth Garcia Gonzalez pleaded guilty July 8.

Today, U.S. District Judge Marina Garcia Marmolejo handed Gonzalez a 48-month term of imprisonment. Not a U.S. citizen, she is expected to face removal proceedings following the sentence.

On Feb. 16, Gonzalez attempted entry into the United States at the Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge in Laredo driving a 2017 Nissan Versa. Upon inspection, an X-ray scan revealed anomalies concealed within her vehicle. At that time, authorities conducted a search and found several bundles of white powder hidden behind the glove box.

The bundles field tested positive for cocaine and weighed approximately 10.88 kilograms with an estimated street value of nearly $275,000.

Gonzalez has been and will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations conducted the investigation with assistance of Customs and Border Protection. Assistant U.S. Attorney David Fawcett prosecuted the case.
