HOUSTON – A 54-year Mexican citizen who illegally resided in Houston has been ordered to federal prison following his conviction of conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute meth, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick. Salvador Naranjo-Sosa pleaded guilty April 25.  

 

Today, U.S. District Judge Alfred H. Bennett ordered he serve a 126-month term of imprisonment. Not a U.S. citizen, he is expected to face deportation proceedings following his sentence.

 

The investigation began in November 2016 when authorities had learned narcotics were being stored in a house on Berry road in Houston. There, they made contact with Naranjo-Sosa, who was the only person present.

 

Authorities soon observed what appeared to be crystal meth.

 

Naranjo-Sosa admitted he was being paid to “watch over” the narcotics.

 

An analysis later determined the substance was meth with a purity level of 92%, making it “Ice.”  The drugs weighed a total of 6.56 kilograms and had an estimated street value of $420,000.  

 

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

 

The Drug Enforcement Administration led the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Stuart A. Burns is prosecuting the case.
